DPR initiated an extraordinary meeting of the Contact Group via videoconference - Natalia Nikonorova

Due to the disruption by the Ukrainian party of the beginning of renewed obligations at the disengagement area in Petrovskoe on the date agreed by all participants of the Contact group, based on paragraph 5 of the Framework Decision, representatives of the Republic initiated an extraordinary operational meeting of the Contact group in the form of a video conference.

As it is prescribed by the Framework Decision the timing and features of the process of the disengagement of forces and means are discussed and approved only at the Contact group level.

In this regard, at an emergency meeting, all members of the Contact group will have to determine a new date for the start of the activities to eliminate violations in the previously disengaged section No. 3, which are in accordance with the previously approved schedule.

We look forward to the OSCE active position in organizing the urgent holding of the Contact group meeting via videoconference, as well as the healthy approach of our opponents to the adoption of the new date.
