Results of the sitting of the group on humanitarian issues (February 27)

27 February 2019

It was earlier noted, that the work in the group on humanitarian issues in fact was blocked by demonstrative sabotage by the Ukrainian negotiators.
“The negotiators from Kiev not only thwarted the sitting, and the OSCE coordinator was even forced to comment on the frankly unethical public statement of the Ukraine representative. The OSCE coordinator called it not corresponding to reality. This is not surprising, since Mrs. Gerashchenko, as usual, was absent from the negotiations” - Nikonorova said.
The DPR Plenipotentiary expressed regret that the destructive behavior of the Ukrainian party did not provide a full-fledged meeting of the working group.
"Despite the significant step taken by the DPR at the last meeting, it was not possible to advance today in the work of finding the missing people precisely because of the absence of Ukrainian negotiators from the meeting" - Natalia Nikonorova clarified.
