    The main task of the participants of the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine reconciliation is to verify in real-time whether the mutual obligations on the full-fledged ceasefire are fulfilled, according to a spokeswoman for Kiev's reconciliation negotiator Leonid Kuchma.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Trilateral Contact Group on Ukrainian reconciliation will hold on September 1 in Minsk a video conference to assess the implementation of the ceasefire in Donbass, a spokeswoman for Kiev's reconciliation negotiator Leonid Kuchma said Friday.

    The Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis, which comprises representatives from Ukraine, Russia and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), was set up in 2014 in a bid to promote a direct dialogue between Ukraine’s conflicting parties.

    "The main task of the participants of the Trilateral Contact Group is to verify in real-time whether the mutual obligations on the full-fledged ceasefire are fulfilled," Dariia Olifer wrote on her Facebook page.

    She added that all Contact Group representatives — Martin Sajdik (OSCE), Azamat Kulmukhametov (Russia) and Leonid Kuchma (Ukraine) — are expected to arrive in Kiev to take part in the conference.

    Kiev authorities and Donbass militias agreed to a ceasefire under the Minsk deal reached in February. However, both sides have since accused each other of violating the truce.
