During the Press marathon on Thursday, the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said that the introduction of the “Steinmeier formula” would not lead to civil conflict in the country if the situation is not warmed up.
“I believe that this is not true, because there is a request from society to put the war to its end. There is precisely this request. If questions continue to be heated, anything can be possible”, – Zelenskiy said, answering the question, if he realizes that the introduction of the “Steinmeier formula” may lead to the internal conflict in Ukraine. Broadcastings are held on Ukrainian TV channels.
Earlier, the contact group for Ukraine agreed on the “Steinmeier formula”, according to which the law on the special procedure for local self-government in certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions comes into force on an interim basis on election day and on an ongoing basis after the publication of the OSCE election report. After that, protests against the approval of the “Steinmeier formula” took place in Ukraine.
