The issue of creating the so-called "Advisory Council" under the political group of the Trilateral Contact Group, which has caused rejection in Ukrainian society, will no longer be considered. This was said by Vice Prime Minister for the temporarily occupied territories Olksii Reznikov in an interview with Ukrinform.
"…There is no answer from the German side, from the French one, from the OSCE. Therefore, this question is no longer practical. Forget and move on", - Reznikov said.
When asked about representatives of certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts from the Ukrainian side, proposed to be involved to the TCG's work in Minsk, Reznikov replied: "We have almost completed consultations and interviews with candidates who will be invited as representatives from the Ukrainian side during the negotiations in TCG".
Speaking about the likely number of such representatives, Reznikov noted that "there could be 8 or 16".
"Depending on the agenda. We have 4 working groups. The issue is not in quantity, but in quality", - the Vice Prime Minister concluded.
