MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. The political subgroup of the Contact Group on settlement in eastern Ukraine is due to discuss on Wednesday the work of journalists and monitors at the elections in Donbas, a source close to negotiations in Minsk has told the LuganskInformCenter.
"Today we will discuss the issues of regulating the activity of mass media during the elections and organizing international monitoring at polls," the source told the news agency.
Earlier in the day, the political subgroup resumed meeting in the Belarusian capital Minsk that began on Tuesday.
The subgroups on security and humanitarian issues will begin talks at 1 p.m. local time (10.00 a.m. GMT) on Wednesday.
The envoy of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), Vladislav Deinego, earlier said the working subgroup on economic issues of the Contact Group would not hold a meeting in Minsk on Wednesday.
The trilateral Contact Group’s meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. local time (2 p.m. GMT).
Representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have earlier said this could be a crucial meeting and the sides could reach compromise.
