Donetsk, Jul 6 - DAN. The Ukrainian delegation withdrew from the session of the Contact Group political subgroup, Donetsk People’s Republic representative in the subgroup Natalia Mikhailova said on Tuesday.

“As the participants were about to begin an official discussion and our activist joined it, Ukraine demonstratively quit the session,” Mikhailova said.

She said that the new coordinator for the OSCE Sylvie-Agnes Bermann regretted the deadlock.

Ukraine’s position is absolutely at odds with the commitments under the Package of Measures and principles of any productive negotiations, Mikhailova said.

The humanitarian and political subgroups had sessions via video link earlier in the day. The results of the talks will be summed up by the Contact Group which is scheduled to meet on July 7.*jk
