LPR envoy: Security subgroup to meet in Minsk on 6 December

The members of the Contact Group's working group on security issues are to meet in Minsk on December, 6th, said LPR envoy to Minsk negotiations Vladislav Deinego.

"The members of the Contact Group's working group on security issues plan to start the meeting tomorrow, 6 December, at 10 a.m in Minsk," he said.

"The day after tomorrow, on December, 7th, other subgroups meetings are scheduled to start working, beginning at 10 a.m.," Deinego added.

The Contact Group members are to embark on negotiations on December, 7th, at 12 a.m.

The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements was adopted by the Contact Group on Ukraine on February 12, 2015 and supported by member states of the "Normandy Four" (Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France). The UN Security Council approved the document by its 2202 Resolution and called upon all the sides to ensure full implementation of the Package of Measures.

The document provides for comprehensive ceasefire, withdrawal of all heavy weapons from the contact line, starting a dialog on reconstruction of social and economic ties between Kiev and Donbass. It also envisages carrying out constitutional reform in Ukraine providing for decentralization and adopting permanent legislation on a special status of certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
