Ukraine peace talks called off

Minsk will not be hosting on Friday another round of the Contact Group’s negotiations on the resolution of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Dmitry Mironchik, a spokesman for the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, said on Friday, TASS reports.

“There will be no negotiations of the Contact Group in Minsk today,” Mironchik said.

On Wednesday evening, Contact Group held a meeting in Minsk on resolving the conflict in Ukraine, which has killed 4,700 and displaced 1 million people. After the talks, the participants gave no comments to journalists.

The talks were attended by ex-Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, the representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics, Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deinego, and also Russia’s ambassador to Kiev Mikhail Zurabov and OSCE envoy Heidi Tagliavini.

Deinego later told TASS that the date for the next meeting remained unclear. Earlier reports said another round of talks could be held in Minsk on December 26. Pushilin told the Donetsk news agency it would be incorrect to reveal the results of the meeting until the next round of talks.
