    Representatives of the Donetsk People’s Republic plan to participate in the meeting of the three-party group on Ukraine due on July 31 in Minsk, the republic’s prime minister has said.

    DONETSK, July 30 (RIA Novosti) – Representatives of the Donetsk People’s Republic plan to participate in the meeting of the three-party group on Ukraine due on July 31 in Minsk, the republic’s prime minister has said.

    “We will be anyway present there, don’t worry. If this meeting ever takes place,” Aleksander Boroday said, refusing to give further details on who will represent Donetsk militia on security reasons.

    Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman said Wednesday the Kiev government is ready to send its representatives to the Ukraine contact group meeting in the Belarusian capital.

    The deputy prime minister said the delegation would demand unimpeded access to the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine.

    On Tuesday, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko agreed to host talks on the Ukraine crisis in Minsk following a request from his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow welcomes Belarus' move but added that one meeting would not be enough to resolve the problems.
