Earlier, the Ukrainian delegation in the Trilateral Contact Group announced five major points of its "action plan in Donbas." That, in particular, includes the withdrawal of foreign troops, illegal armed units, and mercenary gangs from the territory of Ukraine in early 2021; it also urges the Russian government to cancel the decisions that interfere in the everyday life in the occupied Donbas - like the one about the provision of Russian citizenship to residents of these territories.
