Kiev initiates a meeting of the Contact Group on the situation in Donbass

Kiev initiates an extraordinary meeting of the Contact Group to resolve the situation in Donbass, said Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmitry Kulebа.

This is due to the fact that the authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic plan to destroy the facilities of the Supreme Soviet near the line of contact.

Kuleba said that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was informed about the situation. The Foreign Minister stressed the concern of the head of state in this regard.

“We immediately made a step in response: we, Ukraine, convene an extraordinary meeting of the Tripartite Contact Group just for tomorrow,” – said Kuleba.

Denis Pushilin, the head of the DPR, said earlier that he had given an order to open fire on illegally constructed military engineering structures near the village of Shumy.

Earlier, the DPR and the Lugansk People’s Republic introduced an indefinite ceasefire. The regime of silence is introduced in accordance with the decisions taken at the contact group talks in Minsk.
