MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. The security subgroup of the Contact Group on settlement of the situation in Donbass will meet after June 26, representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the Group Denis Pushilin said Saturday.
"The meeting will approximately take place after June 26," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Pushilin as saying.
He said that on June 23 (when meetings of three other subgroups take place), the security negotiators will not meet due to preparation of an agreement on withdrawal of armaments with the calibers less than 100 millimeters from the contact line.
The Trilateral Contact Group on settlement in east Ukraine comprising representatives of Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on February 12, 2015 signed a 13-point Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements.
The Package of Measures (Minsk-2), earlier agreed with the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine), included cessation of fire from February 15, withdrawal of heavy armaments, as well as measures on long-term political settlement in Ukraine, in particular establishment of working subgroups.
The subgroups focus on four areas: economic issues and restoration of facilities; refugees, internally displaced persons and humanitarian assistance; political issues; security issues.
