Member of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Ilmiy Umerov pointed out the fact, that there is no a single word about Crimea in documents adopted during Normandy format meeting in Minsk Feb 12.
“What about Crimea? They might mean it when talking about Ukraine’s territorial integrity”- Umerov wrote in Facebook.
Two separate documents came out of the meeting: an empty declaration, in which the negotiating parties affirm "full respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," and a three-page, 11-point document purporting to be a roadmap to the implementation of last September's cease-fire agreement.
It is, in fact, a new deal, more favorable to the Russian-backed rebels than the September agreement. Here are the points of the agreement:
1. Immediate and full bilateral ceasefire
To take effect in parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, from 00:00 local time on 15 February (22:00 GMT on 14 February).
2. Withdrawal of all heavy weapons by both sides
To equal distances to create a buffer zone of: at least 50km (30 miles) separating both sides for artillery systems of 100mm calibre or more; 70km for multiple rocket systems and 140km for the heaviest rocket and missile systems such as Tornado, Uragan, Smerch and Tochka.
Ukrainian troops to withdraw heavy weapons from the current frontline.
Separatist forces to withdraw theirs from the line of 19 September 2014.
3. Effective monitoring and verification regime for the ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons
To be carried out by the OSCE from day one, using all necessary technology such as satellites and radar.
4. From day one of the withdrawal begin a dialogue on the holding of local elections
In line with the Ukrainian law on temporary self-rule for parts of Donetsk and Luhansk. There will also be a dialogue on those areas' political future.
5. Pardon and amnesty by banning any prosecution of figures involved in the Donetsk and Luhansk conflict6. Release of all hostages and other illegally detained people
On the basis of "all for all". To be completed at the latest on the fifth day after the military withdrawal.
7. Unimpeded delivery of humanitarian aid to the needy, internationally supervised8. Restoration of full social and economic links with affected areas
Including social transfers, such as payment of pensions. To that end, Ukraine will restore its banking services in districts affected by the conflict.
9. Full Ukrainian government control will be restored over the state border, throughout the conflict zone
To begin on the first day after local elections, and be completed after a comprehensive political settlement, by the end of 2015. (Local elections in rebel-controlled Donetsk and Luhansk regions will be based on Ukrainian law and a constitutional reform.)
10. Withdrawal of all foreign armed groups, weapons and mercenaries from Ukrainian territory
To be monitored by the OSCE. All illegal groups to be disarmed.
11. Constitutional reform in Ukraine, with adoption of a new constitution by the end of 2015
A key element of which will be decentralisation (taking account of the special features of certain parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, agreed with representatives of those regions), and adoption of permanent laws on the special status of those areas.
