"Today we've introduced the first [draft] law on special provisions of local government in certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions where the 'Steinmeier formula' has been implemented," he told LB.ua on June 17.

According to Yermak, the document will be discussed with "our representatives" from the Russia-occupied territories so that they could "express their opinion."

As UNIAN reported, Yermak earlier admitted that Serhiy Sivokho, an ex-advisor to the Secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council (NSDC), was wrong when he urged Ukrainians to reconcile with those from Russia-occupied Donbas as he did not take into account the mood of society.
