Ukraine in Trilateral Contact Group advocated establishment of working subgroup on Ukraine-Russia border, which would address the issue of regulating control for providing access to OSCE SMM representatives. This was reported on Facebook by Daria Olifer, press secretary for Leonid Kuchma, Ukraine’s representative in Trilateral Contact Group. 

"OSCE observers should receive unhindered access to all Ukrainian territory, including Ukraine-Russia border. Establishment of special working subgroup on border for the further settlement of this issue of border control is necessary," Olider noted.

Ukrainian side also expressed concern with the escalating aggression towards OSCE SMM monitors taking place in the occupied Donbas territories.

Beyond that, Ukrainian side insists that the militants move away from Ukrainian enterprises. 

"Illegal armed groups must stop raiding Ukrainian and European companies, both state and private, as well as abandoning the creation of the so-called "border" and rouble zone in the occupied territories. We are also demanding cancellation of the order by Russian president regarding recognition of documents issued by militants in Donbas," Olifer noted.
