There is no draft law on creating a special status for the restive regions of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko said, adding that Ukraine is only to be decentralized.
“There will be no law on the special status of Donbass region. There is a law on a special operation mode of the local government. The secession of the region is out of question. A process of general decentralization is underway. It will start across the country,” Poroshenko said on Thursday speaking at a press-conference in Kiev.
This statement runs counter to the Minsk protocol signed on September 5 by Kiev and local militias outlining what needs to be done to ensure the ceasefire in Ukraine’s east. One of the key points of the agreement was the adoption of a new law providing for a special status for Lugansk and Donetsk regions and early elections there.

‘SOUTH EAST ASIA NEWS DESK REPORTING ’
RAWALPINDI- PAKISTAN: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif was asked by the government to play “facilitative role for resolution of current impasse,” DG ISPR Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa tweeted.
With the political turmoil due to Mr. Imran Khan Cricketer philanthropist turned politician and Canadian-Pakistani cleric, both in opposition have demanded that current government should step down immediately.
Their reasons include: he South Asian nation is also plagued by high unemployment, daily power cuts and a Taliban insurgency, while anti-Western and violent sectarian groups are gaining strength.
Some thousands have marched to Islamabad, the capital and most protesters on the streets of Islamabad say they are demonstrating against government corruption, which they blame for the country’s widespread poverty.
KARACHI-PAKISTAN: A woman can do just about anything a man can, all she requires is ‘opportunity’, said 22-year-old Pakistani mountaineer Samina Baig, speaking at the jam packed Aga Khan University Hospital’s gymnasium, with her talk aptly titled ‘No Mountain Too High, Nor Too Easy’.

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN – September 24 – John Gosden became the latest racing professional to express outrage at the Daily Mirror on Tuesday when he used the word “satanic” to describe that paper’s decision to put a picture of a fatally injured horse on its Saturday front page. “It was a very strange editorial decision, very strange,” said the trainer as he watched his horses working up the Warren Hill gallop here.
Famously Gosden provided context for shocked viewers in 2011 when the badly injured Rewilding had to be put down in front of packed grandstands at Ascot after the King George, explaining that, while horses are robust animals for the most part, they could sometimes be vulnerable to such things. “I remember saying after poor Re-wilding’s accident, I have stood on a rail watching yearlings gallop round a field, enjoying themselves and suddenly they put a leg down wrong,” he recalled on Tuesday.
Rounding on the Mirror for printing several pictures of Wigmore Hall with an irreparably shattered leg, Gosden added: “I think there’s something pretty satanic about going for that voyeurism, really. First of all, that someone’s going to take a picture of such a thing.
“These things happen but, to use that, I think it’s pretty dark behaviour. We have to deal with the reality of life. These horses effectively live in the Ritz Hotel all their lives.
“What I never like to see is people not caring for animals. He had every care and [his injury] was dealt with absolutely in expedient fashion. The fact that someone wants to rush down there and take a picture of it is a little sick in the mind.
