Escalation in Donbass: will the TCG gather for an emergency meeting, Arestovych told


An extraordinary meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) for the peaceful settlement of the situation in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, connected with the shelling of the positions of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on July 26 in which 7 soldiers were wounded, is unlikely. This was informed by speaker of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG Oleksiy Arestovych in a comment to Interfax-Ukraine agency, UA reports.

“The issue is currently being discussed. But technically it is hardly possible because the OSCE representatives are on a planned leave” – he said.

Arestovych reminded that the next meeting of the TCG is scheduled for August 26.

To remind, on July 26, the illegal armed groups have once again violated the ceasefire and fired at the positions of Ukrainian soldiers in the area of ​​responsibility of the operational and tactical group “East” with heavy artillery prohibited by the Minsk agreements. Seven servicemen were injured.
