The Ukrainian side to the Trilateral Contact Group on Tuesday announced the conditions for the implementation of the political bloc of the Minsk agreements on Donbas settlement, says Darka Olifer, press secretary for Ukraine's envoy, ex-president Leonid Kuchma.

She noted that during the Minsk meeting of the TCG's socio-economic subgroup, the Ukrainian side once again raised the issue of the need to have the occupied areas of Donbas stoop using the Russian ruble, return seized Ukrainian state-owned and private property, and restore tax payments to the Ukrainian state budget in strict accordance with Ukrainian legislation.
