Videoconference on Donbas settlement cancelled due to militants’ refusal

The Trilateral Contact Group meeting in the videoconference format, with participation of representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic, is not going to happen on September 30, as planned previously, due to the refusal of the Donetsk representative, Darka Olifer, press secretary of Ukrainian representative to the Trilateral Contact Group, Second Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, said, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

“As was mutually agreed by the participants in the Trilateral Contact Group, a Trilateral Contact Group meeting was planned to be held in the videoconference regime, with invitation of representatives of SADR and SALR [separate areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions], on September 30. The meeting’s agenda was actual implementation of the Trilateral Contact Group’s framework decision on the disengagement of forces and equipment. However, the Skype-meeting is not going to take place due to the refusal on the part of the SADR representative,” Olifer wrote on her Facebook page on Thursday.
