Fundamentally different approaches of the Republics and official Kiev to the solution of the accumulated problems in the framework of the economic subgroup do not allow to achieve significant progress. Today, the Ukrainian side has not provided its position either on the mechanism for the payment of pensions or on the repayment of debts to employees of the railway and SE "Water of Donbass".

Also, Kiev's negotiators continue to take a destructive position in the humanitarian subgroup: procedural and formal problems on the preparation of persons for the exchange have not been solved by the Ukrainian side. In addition, the republics reiterated the inadmissibility of unilateral actions to verify the detained persons.
