    The Contact Group on Ukraine is preparing a plan to prevent further escalation of violence along the conflict separation line in eastern Ukraine, according to a draft document obtained by Sputnik on Wednesday.

    MINSK (Sputnik) — The document, preliminary dubbed as "An appeal to stop hostilities around the Donetsk airport, Avdiivka and Yasinovataya," calls on all sides of the conflict to adhere to unconditional ceasefire, and withdraw heavy weaponry from the separation line as stipulated by the Minsk agreements.

    The Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) will be responsible for coordinating the implementation of the proposed measures while the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) will monitor the compliance with the document.
