LPR expects Kyiv to start direct dialogue with Donbas after Normandy-format summit
LUHANSK. Dec 9 (Interfax) - The self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) hopes that that Donbas will be able to start direct dialogue with Kyiv after the Normandy-format summit, LPR envoy to the political working group of the Trilateral Contact Group Rodion Miroshnik said.
"Of course, we are awaiting dialogue, direct dialogue between Donbas and Kyiv. It is exactly the format that allows to agree on the made decisions and all details ranging from the special status to amnesty, economic status, status of people's militia and its role in all processes and so on and so forth," Miroshnik said on the air of the Rossiya 24 (VGTRK) TV channel on Monday night.
"A vast range of things that are incompatible with the real sense" were stated by the Ukrainian side, in particular Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky prior to the Normandy-format summit, he said.
"That is why in general we are waiting for the main thing which is to achieve and to a certain extent coerce Ukraine to direct dialogue between Donbas and Kyiv," he said.

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
