Trilateral contact group: Ceasefire in Donbas to become of unlimited duration
Extraordinary videoconference on this topic to be held on September 13
Trilateral contact group noted that the ceasefire declared on September 1, should not be violated again. Daria Olifer, the Press Secretary of the Ukraine’ Representative Leonid Kuchma, wrote this on Facebook.
"Trilateral Contact Group once again confirmed that the ceasefire should be permanent", she said.
According to Olifer, the humanitarian subgroups of Ukraine called on all parties to abide by the protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on children in armed conflict. This document prohibits the involvement of minors in military actions.
"Ukraine welcomes all initiatives of the International Red Cross Committee, aimed to help all children of the Donbas region", the press-secretary of Kuchma wrote.
The Minsk Trilateral Contact Group agreed that the ceasefire will be set in Donbas since midnight September 1. Since then, the number and intensity of enemy attacks has vastly decreased. For several days, Ukrainian troops didn’t even take any casualties.
