Ukraine will raise issues of violation of the "Easter truce" in the Donbass and the release of hostages during the next meeting within the framework of the Tripartite Contact Group in Minsk on April 4. This was reported by the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, the representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup of the TCG Iryna Herashchenko, OstroV’s correspondent reports.

"The issue of violation of the ceasefire - there was silence only for 10 minutes on the first day (of the Easter truce"- OstroV) and then they shelled both Ukrainian positions and settlements. The aggression against people and shooting down Ukrainian and OSCE drones is unacceptable. This will be one of the key topics at the first meeting of the working group after the election of president Putin", - Herashchenko said.

The second issue, which Ukraine will raise during the meeting, is the release of the hostages.

"The Ukrainian side is doing its utmost to see the next wave of hostage release as soon as possible", - she said.
