On June 5, the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on peaceful settlement of the situation in Donbas will take place presenting concrete proposals of Ukraine. It was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy during the briefing on June 3 in Kyiv.
The Head of State reminded that he had met with representatives of the U.S., France, Germany and other countries of the European Union.
“We have discussed a very important issue for every Ukrainian - ending the war in Donbas. We share a common position - restoration of negotiations on Donbas in the Normandy format and unblocking of the Minsk process. We do not have plenty of years to end the war. We have got concrete proposals and new solutions. I would like all the proposals to be combined with clear terms of fulfillment of this or that item. Nobody is going to trade the territory, sovereignty of Ukraine,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
The President also expressed gratitude to Leonid Kuchma who took on leadership in the Ukrainian delegation of the Trilateral Contact Group.
For his part, the former president noted willingness to contribute to the work of the TCG.
“I am used to adopt decisions, fulfill them and be responsible for them. Today’s meeting with the President shows that I have an opportunity to make a contribution within the established group. If we adopt the agreed decisions, Ukraine must also comply with them," Leonid Kuchma stressed.
