The 12-point peace plan has been published by the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), RIA Novosti reported.

The document is published in Russian on OSCE's web site.

Note that the plan only has 12 points, and not 14 points as the original document had going into the Trilateral Contact Group talks by Ukraine, Russia and OSCE.

The next round of the talks will take place in 7-8 days, and will have more participants, including from the Ukrainian presidential administration. The ceasefire has not been called off despite resumed battle in Mariupol and other regions, and the POW exchange is underway with some Ukrainian prisoners already released.

Aleksandr Zakharchenko, Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" said at the talks that he would seek independence for the Donbass region.

The Interpreter has provided a translation of the plan:

1. Ensure immediate bilateral ceasefire.

2. Ensure monitoring and verification by OSCE of the regimen of non-use of weapons.

3. Conduct a decentralization of authority, including through passage of a Law of Ukraine "On Provisional Procedure for Local Self-Government in Individual Districts of Donetsk and Lugansk Regions" (Law on Special Status).

4. Ensure permanently operating monitoring of the Ukrainian-Russian border and verification by OSCE with the creation of a zone of security in border regions of Ukraine and Russian Federation.

5. Immediately release all prisoners and unlawfully held persons.

6. Pass a law on the inadmissibility of prosecuting and punishing persons in connection with the events that took place in individual districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk Regions of Ukraine.

7. Continue an inclusive common national dialogue.

8. Take measures to improve the humanitarian situation in the Donbass.

9. Ensure the conducting of local elections ahead of schedule in connection with the Law on Ukraine "On the Provisional Procedure for Local Self-Government in Certain Districts of Donetsk and Lugansk Regions" (Law on Special Status).

10. Withdraw unlawful armed formations, military equipment and also fighters and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine.

11. Adopt a program of economic renewal for the Donbass and restoration of the viability of the region.
