Contact group to discuss Donbas elections on October 6 – Kyiv
The trilateral contact group will meet in Minsk on October 6 to discuss local elections in Donbas, Kostiantyn Yeliseyev, deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential administration, said.
"Local elections will be discussed by the trilateral contact group and I want to say that the next meeting will take place tomorrow, and we hope the process will begin there," Yeliseyev told a briefing in Kyiv on Monday.
Yeliseyev added that the special things about the voting in eastern Ukraine have to be taken into account, specifically, guarantees of internally displaced people's ability to vote, participation by all political forces and the unimpeded work of all Ukrainian media during the election process.
"All these aspects will be discussed by the trilateral contact group, which is a key mechanism in the implementation of the Minsk agreements," Yeliseyev said.
