KIEV, September 18. /TASS/. The Contact Group on settlement in eastern Ukraine is holding a video conference on Tuesday, Darya Olifer, a spokesperson for Kiev’s envoy to the group, Leonid Kuchma, said.
"A video conference of the Trilateral Contact Group has begun," she wrote on her Facebook account.
The consultations are also attended by the representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, she said.
Ambassador Martin Sajdik, the special representative of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), told TASS that Tuesday’s talks will focus on the implementation of the ceasefire that entered into force on September 1.
