Roman Bezsmertny is excluded from the political subdivision of Minsk negotiation group, which seeks a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict in Donbas.

President Volodymyr Zelensky removed him from this office with his decree - just one month after Bezsmertny's appointment. The official had previously served in the political subdivision in 2015 and 2016.

Meanwhile, the Office of President of Ukraine reported that Leonid Kuchma who heads the Ukrainian delegation in the Minsk group has been shaping a 'more effective team' for negotiations.
