Contact group in Ukraine. Cease-fire to begin on July 21

17 July 2019

The indefinite cease-fire will begin  on July 21 - the parties to the conflict in eastern Ukraine agreed on a new truce today within the framework of the next meeting of the Tripartite Contact Group. OSCE Special Representative Martin Sajdik called it a very timely step, as the number of ceasefire violations has recently increased.
