LUGANSK, August 3. /TASS/. Members of the Contact Group’s security subgroup on the settlement in eastern Ukraine have failed to reach a compromise on the disengagement of forces in the Donbass region, envoy of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) to the talks Vladislav Deynego told LuganskInformTsentr news agency on Wednesday.
"No compromise on the disengagement of forces was reached at the security subgroup meeting," he said. "The text of the relevant document was not agreed. The security subgroup’s coordinator informed the Contact Group about this."
This is not the first time the security subgroup fails to reach an agreement on a document on the disengagement of forces in some areas along the contact line. The talks on the issue during the subgroup’s last meeting on July 27 brought no results either.
Russia’s envoy to the Contact Group Boris Gryzlov earlier said that the possibility of creating up to 10 security zones, including in the areas adjacent to the checkpoints, was considered. Viktoria Talakina, a spokesperson for envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin said after the previous meeting that, despite all attempts of DPR and LPR negotiators, Petrovskoye and Zolotoye continue to be the only agreed checkpoints for the disengagement of the parties.
