MOSCOW, June 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Kremlin believes that work of the contact group on peace settlement in Ukraine’s east may be about to bear fruit in days, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“Experts are working on the problem in the context of the short conversation that (Russian president Vladimir) Putin and (Ukrainian President Petro) Poroshenko held in Normandy (on June 6),” he said, adding that first definite steps of the group’s work could take place “in the next days”.
The contact group on peace settlement in Ukraine’s east met for the first time on Sunday with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany Pavlo Klimkin, the OSCE Secretary General’s special envoy Ambassador Heidi Tagliavini and Russia’s Ambassador in Kiev Mikhail Zurabov taking part in it.
Opening the meeting, Poroshenko said that he believed it necessary to bring gunfire in the country’s eastern regions to an end in a week’s time.
