Ukraine demanded that Russian Federation reverses the decision to recognize "DPR/LPR" passports, and that militants stop "seizure" of Ukrainian enterprises and revoke "border" decree during the meeting of Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk. This was reported on the results of the meeting by Daria Olifer, the press secretary of Ukrainian member in the Contact Group Leonid Kuchma.

"Ukraine has made it clear: the decree of Russian president to recognize the documents issued by illegal authorities in Donbas throughout the Russian Federation’s territory, hostile takeover of state and private property in Donbas territory uncontrolled by Ukraine and quasi-decree by the so-called "DPR" about the pseudoborder are unequivocally considered by international community and Ukraine as the violation of Minsk agreement leading to its disruption. We demanded response regarding cancellation of according decisions as such methods by Russia and illegal armed groups in Donbas are blocking consultation process in terms of Minsk talks. Ukraine has raised this issue both in subgroups and during Trilateral Contact Group meeting," Olifer informed.

It is noteworthy that Russia earlier recognized the passports issued by "DPR/LPR" as official documents, while militants claimed that they will consider delimitation line the "state border" with Ukraine. Separatists also captured Ukrainian enterprises located in the occupied territory.
