Today, the Contact Group meeting was held in an expanded format, and Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak and head of the office of the President of Ukraine Andrey Yermak took part in it.
So, the participants of the Contact Group for the first time compiled and agreed on protocol decisions in almost all areas of work. Another significant advance was the agreement on the need to establish a special mechanism to discuss issues within a political group.
Its idea is to create a platform for direct discussion by the two parties to the conflict of topics requiring settlement in accordance with the Package of Measures.
We welcome today's decisions as a positive impetus for the direct interaction of the conflict parties, we hope that this will stimulate the work of the political group and lead to the necessary results in other areas.
