Donbas reintegration scenarios

On December 7, the NSDC at a meeting behind closed doors approved one of five scenarios. No details were revealed either. "The scenario of reintegration is about bringing the occupied territories back to Ukraine," he said. According to Danilov, any scenario has its "derivatives" so the final result will depend on the conditions agreed at the Normandy Four Summit.
