Presidential Office

The story published in some mass media about the alleged holding of a meeting in the Office of the President of Ukraine where the parties discussed the disruption of a special operation aimed to detain militants from Wagner's private military company is a fabrication from A to Z, as stated by Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak during Savik Shuster's Freedom of Speech TV program on Friday.

Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak emphasizes that holding local elections in the territory of Donbas not controlled by Ukraine is possible only after full deoccupation, settlement of all security issues and under observance of OSCE standards.

Ukraine wants to see Belarus as an independent country where human rights are respected, but does not interfere in the internal affairs of the neighboring state, as stated by Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak during Savik Shuster's Freedom of Speech TV program on Friday.

Head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) Leonid Kravchuk emphasizes that the agreements reached in Paris by the leaders of the Normandy format to ensure full and unconditional access of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to detainees are fulfilled only by Ukraine.

The regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) was held by video conference with the participation of the delegations of Ukraine, the Russian Federation and under the OSCE moderation. The talks lasted about seven hours.

As of today, up to 2,000 Hasidic pilgrims are on the border between the Republic of Belarus and Ukraine. Most of them came from Israel, trusting rumors that Ukraine's border with Belarus is allegedly open. The Belarusian authorities are deliberately or unintentionally fueling these rumors with some ill-considered statements.

Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak met with the ambassadors of the G7 countries and spoke about the results of the negotiations at the level of advisors to the leaders of the countries participating in the Normandy format in Berlin.

The Ukrainian delegation, including Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak, Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov and member of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG Andriy Kostin took part in a meeting of political advisors to the leaders of the member states of the Normandy format on Friday in Berlin.

Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak arrived in Berlin on Friday as part of the Ukrainian delegation to hold negotiations between the delegations of the Normandy format countries at the level of political advisors to the leaders of Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia.

As of this morning, we have received a number of contradicting demands from them, which distort the nature of the ceasefire agreements and further humiliate the OSCE as an authoritative and objective mediator. That is why the "one-time inspection" of only one point agreed within the security subgroup of the TCG will not take place.
