Since the full-fledged work in the group on humanitarian issues did not take place, the OSCE coordinator, Mr. Frisch, at the Contact Group meeting focused on the report of his working visit to armed conflict zone.

Mr. Frisch clarified the details of the already known fact that he was not allowed to visit convicts in Ukraine, expressing bewilderment by explaining the Ukrane’s representative about the allegedly insufficient preparation and elaboration of the coordinator’s trip.

“Of course, we share the coordinator’s bewilderment and emphasize that this fact of not allowing to our detainees in the territory of Ukraine cardinally violates the process parity. Of course, in connection with this situation, during the meeting of the Contact Group, we asked a number of questions to the representatives of Kiev, to which they did not give a clear answer.” - DPR Plenipotentiary noted.
