The leaders of the People's Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk will attend the talks in Minsk only after all parties put their signatures to the final document and after the Kiev troops stop shelling settlements of the Donbass region, DPR representative Dennis Pushilin said Saturday, RIA Novosti reports.
"The heads of our republics will come to Minsk as soon as all parties sign the final document, and, most importantly, after the shelling of our settlements ends and heavy equipment is withdrawn," said Pushilin.
According to Pushilin, it is the "first person of Ukraine" who needs to sign the adequate order.
Ukraine's second president, member of the tripartite contact group to resolve the situation in the Donbass, Leonid Kuchma, said that the meeting with representatives of the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk to regulate the situation in the Donbass failed to take place on January 31.
