Ukrainian Proposal Suggests Crimea And Donbas Self-Determination


CORRECTION: Initial translation error by wires, first bullet point changed from 'Russia isn't opposed to Ukraine joining EU' to 'Ukraine proposals include Russia not opposing Ukraine joining EU.

Turkish journalist Ragip Soylu has outlined the Ukrainian ceasefire proposal delivered to the Russian delegation.

  • Earlier today the Russian top negotiator Medinsky said: Ukrainian proposals include Russia not opposing Ukraine joining EU.
  • If confirmed this would represent a major step towards a credible ceasefire agreement but so far there has been no suggestion that Russia has accepted any of the terms of the Ukrainian ceasefire proposal as reported by Soylu:
  • :'1- Guarantors will intervene if Russia attacks after three days of consultations. They may provide arms, or impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine.'
  • '2- In return, Ukraine becomes non-aligned, non-nuclear state, with no foreign bases but Russia will not oppose Ukraine joining EU.'
  • '3 - Ukraine, Russia to discuss the status of Crimea for the next 15 years. Ukraine won’t use violence to resolve the issue.'
  • '4- Putin, Zelensky will personally discuss Donbas dispute. Russia says security guarantees won’t cover Crimea and Donbas.'
  • '5- Ukraine will hold a referendum on the deal. If people approve it, then the guarantors will pass it through their individual parliaments.'
