KIEV, November 17. /TASS/. Kiev believes there is no sense in holding another Contact Group meeting to sign new Minsk agreements on Ukraine.

“The clue for resolution of the Ukrainian conflict is in the Minsk Protocol and the ceasefire memorandum of September 19. There is absolutely no sense in holding another Minsk format meeting until these agreements are fulfilled”, spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, Andriy Lysenko, said at a briefing on Monday, stressing that the Ukrainian side observes these treaties.

The Contact Group of senior representatives of Ukraine, Russia and the OSCE had two meetings in Minsk. On September 5, the sides signed a 12-point protocol in Minsk, in particular, on ceasefire and exchange of hostages. Two weeks later the sides adopted a nine-point memorandum on implementing the ceasefire regime, prohibiting the use of all kinds of weapons and withdrawal of guns of more than 100-mm caliber as far as 15 km away from the confrontation line by both sides. The OSCE was to monitor the compliance with the memorandum.
