  • de-DE1 en-GB1 es-ES1 ru-RU1

The Russian Foreign Ministry rejects media reports citing allegations by the Reuters news agency about a meeting of Russian and Ukrainian military officials in the Donetsk region with the aim of determining a "buffer zone" between the positions of the DPR and LPR and those of the Ukrainian side.

In this connection, we would like to emphasise that all issues pertaining to the implementation of the ceasefire regime are being discussed between representatives of the Ukrainian side and representatives from individual areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Russia's role as a member of the Contact Group consists of providing the necessary assistance to this process in cooperation with the OSCE mission.
