KIEV, December 3. /TASS/. The next round of Minsk talks to settle the situation in Ukraine may be held next week, Ukraine's former president Leonid Kuchma told reporters.
The second president of Ukraine represents Kiev in the Contact Group.
“The next round may take place next week,” he said.
The Minsk agreement is a basic document supported by the world, he said, noting that a positive result of the agreement was the fact that mass killing of people was stopped.
On September 20 in Minsk, the Contact Group on Ukraine signed a nine-point memorandum on a ceasefire. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe monitors the compliance with the document, which was signed by OSCE envoy to Ukraine Heidi Tagliavini, former Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma, Russian Ambassador to Kiev Mikhail Zurabov, Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic Alexander Zakharchenko and head of the Lugansk People’s Republic Igor Plotnitsky.
