Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko should first of all focus on implementing all points of the Minsk agreements before local elections in Donbass, head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky said on Sunday.”We will decide by ourselves, without Pyotr Alexeevich [Poroshenko] whether to take part in the elections when time comes. But for now, I would suggest he focuses on implementing all points [in the Minsk agreements] preceding holding elections on our territory,” Lugansk Inform Center quoted Plotnitsky as saying. Ukraine has not moved forward in implementing the Minsk agreements. “Up to this moment, no points in the package of measures [on implementing the Minsk agreements] were fulfilled by Kiev fully and in time,” he noted.

Discussing snap election[s] in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic makes sense only after amendments are introduced to Ukraine’s constitution, head of LPR council of ministers Gennady Tsypkalov said earlier on Sunday. “If [Minsk] agreements are implemented step by step, amendments to Ukraine’s constitution are introduced, election is coordinated with us, then maybe it will happen,” Lugansk Inform Center quoted Tsypkalov as saying. “It is pointless to discuss the possibility of holding election” in Donbass before Ukraine introduces amendments to the constitution, Tsypkalov noted. “I don’t rule out holding election, but it will be done in accordance with those conditions, with the Minsk agreements that our leadership agreed upon,” he added.

Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said earlier that [the] election in Donbass may take place by the end of 2015. Poroshenko confirmed readiness to work with Donbass representatives elected in accordance with Ukrainian laws and under monitoring of international observers.

The Minsk agreements were signed in February 2015 by Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko. They envisage ceasefire in Ukraine’s south-east, heavy weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbass and constitutional reform in Ukraine.

Quemado Institute Commentary: We disagree with the Tass statement, “Poroshenko confirmed readiness to work with Donbass representatives elected in accordance with Ukrainian laws and under monitoring of international observers.” Confirmed how? Readiness in what sense? This assertion seems misleading, if not patently false, and we wonder why the Russian news agency would include it in their report. Was Tass attempting to soften Plotnitsky’s clear ultimatum, or cast doubt on the LPR Prime Minister’s veracity? Why would Tass find it necessary to side with Western powers and promote anti-Donbass propaganda?

Verkhovna Rada (–Russian News Rupaper.com)

According to some twelve articles we posted on our “News from Novorossiya” page this past week, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine parliament) has shown no willingness whatsoever to cooperate with the DPR/LPR on implementing Minsk 2.0. Indeed, it has defied the Agreements at every turn, for example, by petitioning for UN peacekeepers in Donbass, demanding elections before special status is implemented, requiring elections to follow Ukraine law, passing legislation allowing Ukraine “intelligence” (sabotage) units to operate on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, and even discussing the introduction of dictatorship to control Donbass. All of these proposals are outright violations of Minsk 2.0. Ukraine’s rogue “Prime Minister” Artseniy Yatsenyuk even said, in an impassioned speech to his cabinet Wednesday, “Our goal is to regain control of Donetsk and Lugansk.” This dictatorial proclamation is entirely contrary to the spirit of Minsk.

Certain observers say Poroshenko is merely a figurehead, and has little control over his own parliament, some of whose members do not credit him with the authority to sign documents on their behalf. In any case, we believe Tass has glossed over Poroshenko’s obstructionist intentions. Plotnitsky’s statement that Poroshenko must implement “all points of Minsk before holding elections on our territory” turns the tables on Poroshenko’s own Minsk-defying ultimatum that elections must be held before special status is implemented. We praise Plotnitsky for clearly and unequivocally defending the rights of the Lugansk People’s Republic.

Kiev’s noncompliace with Minsk 2.0 is documented in the following articles, found on our News from Novorossiya page:

2. Russia to block UN peacekeepers’ deployment in Donbas – Lavrov

4. Ukraine Intelligence Units Legalized for Novorossiya
5. Yatsenyuk Determined to Control Donbass

7. Colonal Cassad: Zakharchenko Dismisses Rada Special Status Law
8. DPR/LPR Reject Poroshenko’s Special Status Law
9. Poroshenko’s Special Status Amendments Ruin Minsk 2.0 Process
10. Ukraine Rada Passes Law Granting Special Status Only After Elections

Discussion

One thought on “Plotnitsky: Kiev Should Implement All Points of Minsk Agreements Before Donbass Election

  1. “Poroshenko confirmed readiness to work with Donbass representatives elected in accordance with Ukrainian laws and under monitoring of international observers.”

    Or, in other words, “when hell freezes over” since there are no provisions in Ukrainian laws for such election and there is the stated intention never to negotiate terms of such an election while the leaders of the Donbass republics are “at large.”

    Imagine an election where all the candidates have warrants out for their arrest. That’s what they are talking about. It is an electoral tactic they have used before.

Censorship Looms Over European Union

Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
