KIEV, January 31. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has given instructions to convene an emergency session of the Contact Group for the settlement in eastern Ukraine over a deteriorating situation around Avdeyevka, a settlement in Donbass, deputy head of the president’s administration Konstantin Yeliseyev said on Monday.
"The president has issued instructions to convene an emergency session of the Trilateral Contact Group in any mode, even as a video conference, to discuss a critical situation developing around Avdeyevka," Yeliseyev told Ukrainian 5 TV.
He spoke of "a very tense situation, with critically important infrastructure destroyed" in the area. Poroshenko also instructed Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin to stay in close touch with representatives of the UN Security Council. Besides, according to Yeliseyev, "the OSCE is also preparing its reaction to what is going on around Avdeyevka".
