MOSCOW, September 8. /TASS/. Authorities of the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) pin big hopes on a meeting of the Contact Group for setting the armed civil conflict in southeastern Ukraine that is due to be held in Minsk on Tuesday, the DPR plenipotentiary representative at the talks, Denis Pushilin said.
"There’s a big hope the subgroup for security will put a period to work on a document that regulates the pullback of weapons with the caliber under 100 mm and the initialing of the document is quite possible," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him.
"This will mark a very serious step towards an end to this war," Pushilin said.
On the whole, the agenda of the meetings in Minsk remains very much the same but the DPR officials continue trusting in the importance of the Minsk talks, even though the effects of these negotiations have been moderate so far, he said.
The Contact Group and its four thematic subgroups are expected to have a new round of consultations in Minsk on Tuesday.
