MINSK, July 27. /TASS/. The meeting of the Contact Group’s political subgroup has started in Minsk, the envoy of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) at Minsk talks Vladislav Deinego said on Wednesday.
"The working group on political issues has started its work in Minsk," Lugansk Inform Center quoted Deinego as saying.
The LPR envoy added that subgroups on security, humanitarian and economic issues will start their separate meetings at 11am local time.
"The start of the Contact Group’s meeting is planned for 3:30pm," he noted.
Establishing the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine is envisaged by the Minsk accords signed on 12 February 2015, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk.
