KIEV, September 05, /ITAR-TASS/. A protocol signed by the participants in the Contact Group on Ukraine in Minsk provides for the release of prisoners of war in a term of seven days, Ukraine president’s envoy on the settlement of the situation in eastern regions Irina Gerashchenko said on Friday.
“Key provision is ceasefire by both parties. Both sides - Ukraine and Russia - bear responsibility in implementing the protocol,” the press service of the Ukrainian head of state quoted her as saying.
She noted that the document had a provision envisaging monitoring of the ceasefire regime by representatives of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). “The OSCE will register everything to demonstrate how each of the parties implements this plan,” she said, adding that it was also planned to “establish monitoring of the Russian-Ukrainian border.”
“The peace protocol has provisions on early elections in Donbas and de-centralization of power,” Gerashchenko noted.
