On December 24, a Ukrainian soldier was wounded due to the enemy shelling in Donbas. In this regard, the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) has sent a note to the OSCE. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG.
"The Ukrainian side of the SCCC has used a coordination mechanism: a ‘silence mode’ has been introduced, a requirement on adherence to the ceasefire has been instituted, and a note has been prepared and sent to the OSCE SMM," the statement said.
The Ukrainian delegation added that the soldier's health was satisfactory. He was hospitalized right after the accident took place.
"I believe that the short-term goal in our relations with Russia is to reach the principle of peaceful coexistence. As of now, the war is a fact. We must end it and restore Ukraine's territorial integrity. Nonetheless, we understand that Russia's position on Ukraine will not change. Our goal - to find a way for peaceful coexistence," said the official.
