MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement’s sub-groups will hold meetings today in Minsk in the afternoon, Belarusian foreign ministry told Donetsk News Agency on Monday.

"Sub-groups will meet after 12pm (local time). More detailed information will be announced a little later," the foreign ministry’s press service said.

Minsk agreements on Ukraine

The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

The Minsk accords envisage ceasefire, weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbas, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.

The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
