Ambassador Martin Sajdik, the Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group on the implementation of the peace plan in the East of Ukraine, says he supports the creation of a fifth subgroup that will tackle Ukraine's recovering its border with Russia.


"This issue has long been discussed….it was raised last year and is part of the Minsk Agreements. And I believe this issue needs to be discussed. Unfortunately, it's not clear now how we'll be implementing it. But, in the end, one should finally start discussing and addressing this problem," Sajdik said, after a Trilateral Contact Group meeting in Minsk on Wednesday.

The creation of the subgroup is an initiative of Ukraine.
