“The meeting of trilateral contact group started in Minsk”, reported Daria Olifer, Press Secretary of Ukraine’s Representative and ex-President Leonid Kuchma.

The previous meeting of the Group took place on April 29; back then, the sides agreed that the ceasefire would be established, at least for the Easter period. Militants somewhat stepped down with their combat activity, but it was not enough to make the ceasefire hold for a while.
