"And even if we look at the things done in subgroups, we can say that even in the work of the checkpoint all these two sheets with technical conditions, which we are constantly agreeing on, and there is progress. Unfortunately, it is very slow. Unfortunately, it is the slowest in the most painful issue, which is the release of mutually detained persons. Nevertheless, the Normandy format exists, and although it is advancing very slowly, it exists," Arestovych stated.

Also, according to Arestovych, Ukraine is not considering the deployment of UN peacekeepers in Donbas at this moment. In turn, the Ukrainian side suggests quadrupling the overall composition of the OSCE mission.
