KIEV, February 9. /TASS/. Kiev is preparing a document on the implementation of the Minsk agreements on the settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine, Valery Chaly, a deputy head of the Ukrainian president’s administration said on Monday.
"We have a draft of such document. It is a plan of the implementation of the Minsk agreements," he told ICTV television, adding that "the settlement process is proceeding with big difficulties."
He stressed it was vitally important to hold a meeting of the Contact Group on Tuesday, and a meeting in the Normandy format on Wednesday. "We are committed to reach a result. We are working day and night," he said.
"During the day on Monday, /Ukrainian/ President Petro Poroshenko had a number of conversation with international partners. We don’t even have time enough to inform about all of them on the presidential website," Chaly noted.
He underscored that Kiev did not want a "frozen conflict." "Our goal is to find a solution and establish peace," he said.
Another round of talks of the Contact Group on the Ukrainian settlement is planned for February 10 in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk.
