The ceremony of raising Ukraine’s state flag took place in the Belarusian capital, right before the Wednesday meeting of Minsk talks group began.

As the festive moment on the occasion of the Flag Day was over, the officials got back to work. At today’s session, subdivisions of the group and the group itself discuss the ceasefire offer, made by the Ukrainian party.

Previously, President Poroshenko offered the Normandy talks group that the ceasefire begins on either August 25 or September 1, so that children could go to school safely.    

According to Iryna Gerashchenko, the vice speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, the Minsk group should announce their decision on this matter during today’s session.
