MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) are ready for meetings of the Contact Group in Minsk on December 24 and 26, Denis Pushilin, the DPR representative at the peace talks, told the Donetsk news agency on Monday.
“We are ready to meet in the format of the Contact Group in Minsk on December 24 and 26. We hope these meeting will not be postponed or cancelled. Such meetings are badly needed, as soon as possible,” he stressed.
However he said the DPR authorities had received no official confirmation of the date from Ukraine. “Today, Ukraine has not yet contacted us to agree the date, but, nonetheless, we are ready for this dialogue on these dates,” he said.
Earlier on Monday, the press service of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that the leaders of Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia had agreed to have new round of meetings of the Contact Group in Minsk on Wednesday and Friday (December 24 and 26, respectively).
The Kremlin press service, commenting on a telephone conversation between the four leaders, did not mention these dates. “The leaders agreed that it is necessary to fulfill all the provisions of the Minsk agreements, including the ones on ceasefire, on the disengagement line that was fixed in the Memorandum of September 19, on pullout of troops and heavy weaponry, and on immediate release of all hostages,” the Kremlin press service said.
