KIEV, December 9. /TASS/. The date of the meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine has not been determined yet, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Yevgeny Perebeinos said on Tuesday.
The decision depends on the position of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, he said.
“The Contact Group continues consultations. It meets regularly and permanently. We hope that an agreement will be reached soon to organize such meeting,” Perebeinos said.
“The unconditional implementation of the Minsk agreements, which are the ‘roadmap’ for deescalation in eastern Ukraine, will be the subject of the talks,” he said.
Denis Pushilin, DPR’s envoy at the Minsk talks, earlier said that the “stumbling block” for the talks is comprised of a number of questions, which the Ukrainian authorities fail to answer clearly and they concern “the gradual lift of the economic blockade, the law on the special status and the law on the amnesty.”
