Today, the negotiators of the economical group discussed the most important agenda items of the meeting. Particular attention was paid to problems in the work of CE "Company" Water of Donbass ", Ukraine's debts on social obligations and wages.

Questions were also raised regarding the international audit of CE “Company“ Water of Donbass”, in the organization of which representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross take part. The ICRC has already held a tender. In addition, the parties agreed to exchange their proposals in writing in the near future on a mechanism that will allow settlements of water payments.

Regarding social payments to residents of the Republics, unfortunately, the Ukrainian position has not changed yet: no proposals were submitted on the necessary elaboration of the legal field. However, for representatives of the Republics this is a priority issue on the agenda and we will stop all attempts to reduce its relevance.

In turn, the negotiators of the humanitarian group today focused on working out a mechanism for searching missing persons, and also discussed the problems of completing all procedures after the exchange of held persons.
