Ukrainian Deputy Minister for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons George Tuka has said a new plan to resolve the situation in Donbas proposed by Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group, Ambassador Martin Sajdik, is acceptable, but open to question.

"What was covered by the media on behalf of Mr. Sajdik – these are exclusively general statements it is difficult to argue about. I would like to say that I consider such theses acceptable. But at the same time, as our bitter experience shows, the devil is in the detail and we don't know the details, at least our ministry didn't receive a detailed plan," he told 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"I'm interested in how the demilitarization of illegal armed groups is supposed to proceed. What are the terms, what are the ways of withdrawing foreign troops from the territory of Donbas? What is meant by the amnesty process? And there are a lot of such questions," Tuka said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group, Ambassador Martin Sajdik, revealed a new plan to resolve the situation in Donbas, involving joint participation of the OSCE and the United Nations.
