On April 28, a regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on the settlement of the conflict in Donbass took place via videoconference. Ukraine, Russia, and the OSCE has failed to reach an agreement on the final text of a ceasefire agreement ahead the Orthodox Easter.
“After almost five hours of useless discussion between Kiev and representatives of the republics, no practical result has been achieved,” the LPR said in a Telegram message.
According to the representative of the Ukrainian delegation in the TCG, Oleksiy Arestovich, the parties failed to agree on the text of the document on the introduction of the “Easter truce”.
“All parties agreed on the need to establish an Easter truce. Two texts of the document were proposed – Ukrainian and Russian. But we have not yet managed to agree on the final text, because there are sensitive formulations, ” he claimed.
Kiev blamed Russia and DPR/LPR, while the representative of the Russian side Boris Gryzlov accused Kiev of blocking the negotiation process.
“Instead of discussing issues, everything was aimed at building tangled ” legal structures ” with the aim of not recognizing Donbass as a party to the conflict.” – he said.
