The meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on the situation in the Donbas region started in Minsk. Daria Olifer, a Spokeswoman for Representative of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, wrote this on Facebook.
"Trilateral contact group meeting started in Minsk”, she wrote.
It should be noted that at the meeting of the Trilateral contact group in Minsk on December 21 the officials will talk through the release of prisoners of war, opening of Zolote checkpoint in Luhansk region, as well as the ongoing fights in the area of Svitlodarsk bulge in Donetsk region.
As the correspondent of Radio Liberty Valeriy Kalinowski, the lack of confidence on the part of the parties to each other complicates the negotiation process.
Earlier, at the headquarters of the ATO stated that the pro-Russian militants tried to knock the Armed Forces of Ukraine with their positions in Svitlodarsk bulge area. During the offensive of the enemy were killed 5 Ukrainian military.
Recall, the representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group Iryna Gerashchenko, as a gesture of good will return 15 people from the list on the exchange to the militants.
