Leonid Kuchma, the representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk and ex-president of Ukraine claimed Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia should be asked about of the peace in Donbas and even the fortune tellers do not know when peace will come there as Interfax-Ukraine reported.

Talking about the upcoming session of the Trilateral Contact Group, Kuchma noted that the agenda will remain unchanged - security, prisoner’s exchange and social topics.
