Kiev: Contact Group on Donbass settlement fails to hold talks
Representatives of the Contact Group for the settlement in Donbass will get together in Minsk today, a spokesperson for Kiev’s envoy to the Contact Group Leonid Kuchma, Darka Olifer, said.
"The Trilateral Contact Group failed to hold a videoconference yesterday due to the absence of representatives of the individual districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and Russia. A meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group is due to take place in Minsk at 3 p.m. today," Interfax cited Olifer as saying.
Ukraine has discussed the escalated tensions near Avdiyivka with Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine and security subgroup coordinator, Ertugrul Apakan, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office to the Contact Group, Martin Sajdik, and Ukrainian and Russian military representatives to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination, she added.
