Talks on Donbass situation may be held in Minsk


A "three-sided negotiations group" (Ukraine-Russia-OSCE) has been created to normalize the situation in Ukraine.

According to authorized representative of the Ukrainian President Iryna Herashchanka, the group's next meeting may be held in the Belarusian capital.

"You know that the decision on resume of the three-sided contact group's work has been taken. It is not excluded that Minsk, not East Ukraine, will be the venue for the next meeting," quotes Ukrainskaya Pravda. However, Herashchanka did not clarify the date of the negotiations and refused to answer the journalists' questions about who initiated the venue change.

Euroradio reminds, the antiterrorist operation has been activated on July 1 in Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine. The Ukrainian force structures hope they will demolish the terrorists' main forces with the help of the aviation blows.
