The complete unification of the "DNR" and "LNR" quasi-formations, created in the part of the Donbas occupied by the Russian Federation, has not yet been observed due to the fact that they are supposedly restrained by the Minsk agreements. This was said by leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin while in Moscow, where he received a party membership card at the congress of the ruling United Russia party on December 4.
"As for full unification, this issue is not being discussed at this stage. Why? Because there are also external obligations", - Pushilin said, having specified that the matter concerned the Minsk agreements.
In fact, the Minsk agreements can in no way prevent the unification of the "republics", because they are not mentioned in the document at all.
As the representative of CADLO from the IDPs in the Trilateral Contact Group Serhiy Harmash stated earlier, there are no even separate CALO and CADO terms in the Minsk agreements, but there is one term – "CADLO".
In CADLO as of today, there are "agreements" between Pushilin and leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik on the unification of the "economic space of the republics", which resulted in the dismantling of "customs posts" on the "border" between the "republics".
