Iryna Herashchenko, First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group on the peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donbas, sent a letter to Frank-Walter Steinmeier, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, German Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs, with a request to assist in release of Ukrainian hostages.
Herashchenko wrote this on her Facebook page.
Herashchenko noted that she appealed in her letter to the OSCE and its chairperson to contribute to the liberation of Ukrainian hostages.
She stressed that in the last month the security and humanitarian situations had significantly deteriorated in Donbas. Militants blocked the release of hostages and rejected any initiative despite all efforts of the Ukrainian side and the willingness to compromise on this issue.
