"To appoint Natalia Yurievna Nikonorova permanent plenipotentiary representative of the 'DPR' at the negotiations of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk," Pushilin said in a "decree," according to terrorists' media.

Pushilin has been a "DPR" envoy to the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk since 2014.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the so-called "People's Council of the Donetsk People's Republic" on September 7 appointed Pushilin acting head of the unrecognized "DPR."
