    The meeting will be held in the Belarusian capital of Minsk at 4 p.m. (13:00 GMT). The results of the working group meetings on security, humanitarian, political and economic issues are on the agenda.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The trilateral Contact Group on Ukrainian reconciliation will meet Tuesday to discuss security, the economy, politics and humanitarian issues, Dariia Olifer, a spokeswoman for reconciliation negotiator and former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, said.

    The meeting will be held in the Belarusian capital of Minsk at 4 p.m. (13:00 GMT), Olifer said in a statement posted late on Monday on her Facebook page.

    "On the agenda are the results of the working group meetings on security, humanitarian, political and economic issues," the statement read.

    Contact Group meetings are traditionally attended by representatives from Ukraine, the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in the country’s southeast, as well as Russia and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

    OSCE Chairman and Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dadic is expected to take part in the discussion, Olifer added.

    Minsk has hosted a series of talks aimed at bringing peace to war-torn Ukraine, including a summit of Russian, Ukrainian, German and French leaders in February, which ended in a roadmap on Ukrainian reconciliation.
