"It should be borne in mind that negotiations on Donbas are carried out by government officials. Now Deputy Prime Minister Oleksiy Reznikov is engaged, as well as representatives of the President's Office, head of the Office Andriy Yermak," Fesenko told Ukraine 24 TV channel.

The political scientist says the Verkhovna Rada also contributes to the negotiation process.

"An important step that has been taken was to involve in the Minsk format's Trilateral Contact Group Ukraine's parliamentary corps. It's not just deputies, it's heads of parliamentary committees. Even the OSCE representative in the Trilateral Contact Group noted this was the right step and that it brought more constructiveness to negotiations," Fesenko said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy updated the composition of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas settlement. The delegation now includes, among others, Deputy Prime Minister Oleksiy Reznikov, MPs, and deputy ministers.
