It is reported that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky noted that Leonid Kuchma's work in the Minsk process had been extremely important and difficult and added that he respected Kuchma’s decision to stop participating in the activities of the TCG.
"Thank you for all the efforts you have made to unlock the Minsk process in order to achieve peace. Your experience has been crucial and extremely necessary. I am always ready to hear your advice in the future," Zelensky said.
For his part, Kuchma emphasized the results that the group had achieved over the years.
