LUHANSK, December 31. /TASS/. A working group involving representatives of Ukraine's Luhansk and Donetsk self-proclaimed republics, Kiev authorities and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) officials will meet in Luhansk on December 31, Luhansk republic plenipotentiary representative at the Contact Group talks Vladislav Deinego told TASS.
“Law enforcers will meet in Luhansk on Wednesday,” he said.
Asked whether any cardinal agreements may be reached at this meeting he said that“everything depends on the result.
On Tuesday, Assistant Commander of Luhansk militia corps Vitaly Kiselev said negotiators plan to talk “military issues raised earlier at the Contact Group meeting over crisis settlement in [highly volatile Ukrainian industrial area] Donbass in [Belarusian capital] the city of Minsk.”
The similar meeting was held on Monday, December 29, in another embattled east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. Talks raised three issues, including continuation of Minsk peace negotiations, ceasefire and pullback of heavy weaponry from the disengagement line, the press service of the Donetsk Defense Ministry reported then. Meanwhile, negotiating parties agreed on a next stage of captive swap.
