Tonight, September 2, a regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (Ukraine, Russia, OSCE) took place in the format of a videoconference, during which a decision was reached on mine action in the Donbas. The press service of the President's Office reports this.
"The Trilateral Contact Group has fully agreed on a framework decision on mine action, which will form the basis for future humanitarian demining work," the statement said.
During the meeting, the coordinates of 19 priority demining sites were agreed. It is also reported that the 20th section near the village of Zolote will be cleared of mines as part of the work to open an additional checkpoint in this area, which is tentatively scheduled for November this year.
In addition, at the working group on security issues, Chairman of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission Yashar Halit Cevik noted that the parties adhere to a full and comprehensive ceasefire.
Also, the OSCE SMM observers did not record any civilian casualties since the ceasefire was declared, and the OSCE Special Representative to the TCG Heidi Grau especially noted the progress made in security matters.
The next meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group is scheduled for September 16.
