On Thursday, December 24, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a law extending for a year the law on a special procedure for local self-government in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. This is evidenced by the status of the law on the parliament’s website.
The Verkhovna Rada extended the law until 2022, December 15.
As well known, the law on the uncontrolled Donbass is valid until December 31, 2020. Last year it was extended on December 18. It has been extended since 2014.
At the same time, the President’s Office previously reported that they had prepared a new bill on the special status of Donbass, which includes the Steinmeier formula. It should be agreed in the Normandy format.
