"Avakov said: Kyiv "has a plan for the return of Crimea and Donbas," but did not disclose the essence. However, Crimea is definitely not to return. With the plan or without it," Federation Council member Alexey Pushkov tweeted.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said the Ukrainian authorities had a plan for Donbas settlement, not related to any concessions to Vladimir Putin's regime.

"We have a very specific plan for Donbas that will be implemented if we see Putin's political will for an actual settlement under pressure from the West. The plan is absolutely not related to any slightest concessions to Putin's regime," said Avakov.
