Participants in the Minsk talks exert pressure on the Ukrainian delegation forcing it to adopt the 'Steinmeier formula, representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said.

Ukraine will not implement the scenario of assigning a special status to Donbass in the framework of the "Steinmeier formula," Kiev’s envoy to the Contact Group’s political subgroup Olga Ayvazovskaya said after the Contact Group’s meeting in Kiev.

Participants in the Minsk talks exert pressure on the Ukrainian delegation forcing it to adopt the "Steinmeier formula," Ayvazovskaya said. "The Ukrainian side cannot resort to this because the leaders of the ‘Normandy Quartet’ ordered the four foreign ministers to coordinate a roadmap by the end of November, part of which will be devoted to provisions on security, as well as a political bloc," she wrote on her Facebook page.

Commenting on the results of Wednesday’s meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk, Viktoria Talakina, press secretary of the envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin, said earlier that they are "rather unsatisfactory."

"The results of the 50th session of the subgroup on political issues are far from optimistic. Negotiators failed to progress in discussing key issues of implementing ‘the Steinmeier formula’ and regulations," Talakina wrote on her Facebook page. "Precisely political issues are the basis for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donbass. ‘The Steinmeier formula’ was approved by participants of the ‘Normandy format’, including the Ukrainian president. That’s why Kiev’s refusal to discuss the implementation of this formula represents another attempt to prolong the negotiations process," she noted.
