Elections in separate districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are possible after fulfilling four conditions, in particular, the withdrawal of foreign troops, illegal armed groups, and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine in early 2021.

The Ukrainian delegation in the TCG presented the key points of the "Donbas Action Plan" to the Russian party and OSCE. They wrote about it on Facebook.

Five key points of the "Donbas Action Plan":

  1. withdrawing foreign troops, illegal armed groups, and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine in early 2021;
  2. the Russian Federation authorities abolishing several decisions and documents directly interfering in the ORDLO life, for instance, a simplified procedure for granting Russian citizenship to the residents of these territories;
  3. regaining control of the relevant section of the Russian-Ukrainian state border with OSCE SMM's help; 
  4. quadrupling the number of the OSCE SMM mission (by 1,500);
  5. the fifth point stipulates that only if everyone meets these conditions will elections be held and held on the ORDLO territory (with the help of the OSCE).

"TCG's next meeting is on November 10. By this time, the OSCE should form its own position and possibly submit its proposals for further consideration of the Action Plan," the Ukrainian delegation said.

The Ukrainian delegation's proposal is currently presented to the mediators (OSCE) and the Russian delegation.

It's also emphasized that this plan is a further development of the ways of implementing the agreements reached in the Normandy format at the highest level, starting in 2014.

The need to create a "Plan" emerged as a joint decision of the three parties, in particular, to unblock the specialized subgroups' work, after the demarche of the Russian party in September this year.

Meanwhile, the report stresses that actually implementing a set of these measures requires the approval of the President and Parliament of Ukraine.
