Darka Olifer, a spokesman for ex-president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, wrote about details of the next round of talks on her Facebook page.

“The issue of release of Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilots and MP, is an integral part of implementing Minsk agreements,” the Austrian diplomat Martin Saydik said.

Reportedly, the Ukrainian side has once again raised the question of liberation of Ukrainian hostages and admission of the ICRC specialists to them, since they have not yet got to military and civilians illegally held on the uncontrolled by Ukraine part of Donbas.

“OSCE SMM experts also regard the continuation of the live-fire exercises in the occupied territory of Donbas as a direct violation of the agreements on refusal to conduct hostilities along the contact line reached last week,” Darka Olifer posted.
