On June 19, Zelensky re-assigned three Ukrainian officials in the various subdivisions of the Trilateral Contact Group; Oleksandr Motsyk was one of these re-assigned people. 

President of the European Council Donald Tusk stated that Minsk Agreements should be fulfilled by both parties to the conflict, especially Russia, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.

“The EU is ready to support Minsk Agreements, which provide the non-recognition of the issuance of the Russian passports to the citizens of occupied territories…It is absolutely clear that Minsk Agreements should be fully fulfilled as never before by all sides; Russia bears special responsibility due to it”, Tusk said.
