“We are getting ready for the meetings of the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement in Ukraine and its three working subgroups – on political, economic and security issues – scheduled for Wednesday,” the diplomat said.

 

Earlier reports said that the Contact Group would meet in Minsk on October 26 without a humanitarian subgroup “because of the Ukrainian side.”
