Earlier, an advisor to the chief of Ukraine’s Security Service, Markian Lubovsky, said that Kiev viewed it as impossible that a new meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine would be held in the Belarusian capital Minsk.
“There will be no Minsk-2,” he said. “We have Minsk-1 and its agreements that we should implement.”
On Thursday, Denis Pushilin, the envoy of the DPR at the peace settlement talks in Minsk, said that officials of self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics were ready to go to Minsk shortly and to take part in a meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine.
“Any attempts to settle the conflict without our republics won’t hold water and will inevitably drive the negotiations into a deadlock,” Pushilin said. He confirmed the republics’ commitment to the Minsk format, which presupposes the participation of Russia, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the DPR, the LPR, and Ukraine.
