KIEV, November 4. /TASS/. Foreign ministers of the Normandy Four countries (Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine) will discuss the plans for increasing the number of the OSCE monitors in Donbass at this week’s talks in Berlin, a spokesperson for Kiev’s envoy to the Minsk talks has said.
At the video conference on Tuesday, the Trilateral Contact Group listened to the reports made by the representatives of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission and the officers of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination.
The Contact Group made several recommendations and called to discuss the issue at the meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna on November 4 and at the talks of the Normandy Four foreign ministers in Berlin on November 6.
"(They) called to increase the number of the OSCE SMM monitors and also to provide them with the special equipment, namely drones and surveillance cameras," Daria Olifer wrote on her Facebook page.
The Contact Group also noted that the effort to withdraw weapons with the caliber under 100mm from the disengagement line in Donbass is taking place under the approved plan, she added.
The participants of talks "gave an impetus to the political subgroup to speed up the process of considering Ukraine’s concept of the law on local elections," the spokesperson said.
