Ukraine’s representative to the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral contact group on resolving the Donbas crisis, MP Iryna Gerashchenko, said that terrorists from the so-called "LPR" and "DPR" are trying to derail the peace process and resort to provocations, continue shelling.
"There are attempts to divert attention from the [peace] process, create more provocations involving the shelling. In all [sub]groups, the Ukrainian side has made it clear - the security situation is a prerequisite for the resolution of all remaining issues," Gerashchenko wrote on Facebook following a meeting of the Tripartite Liaison Group in Minsk.
She noted that, unfortunately, there is no news as of today on the release of the Ukrainians from militant captivity.
