During an extraordinary Contact Group sitting, we finally managed to reach an agreement with the Ukrainian party on carrying out a joint inspection to record an elimination of the violations committed in relation to the advancement of the positions of the Ukrainian armed formations near the settlement of Shumy.
Representatives of the Donetsk People's Republic and representatives of Ukraine in the JCCC will take part in the joint inspection, which will take place under the supervision of the OSCE SMM, tomorrow, on September 10, at 14:00.
We welcome the achievement of consensus on this joint investigation, which is nothing more than the implementation of the agreed measures to monitor the current indefinite ceasefire regime and the guarantee of its maintenance. We call on both Kiev and the OSCE representatives to treat this measure with objectivity, responsibility and full awareness of the importance of its implementation within the framework of mutual coordination.
