Ukraine completes mine clearance near Stanytsia Luhanska bridge – Sajdik

The Ukrainian side has already informed Ambassador Martin Sajdik about the completion of mine clearance near the Stanytsia Luhanska bridge (15km north-east of Luhansk).

The Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), Ambassador Martin Sajdik, said this in a press statement following the TCG’s meeting in Minsk on Wednesday evening.

"The main topic of today’s discussion in the TCG was the repair works of the bridge at Stanytsa Luhanska. The TCG participants agreed on the necessary further steps in this regard. In particular, already tomorrow the sides shall exchange written messages via myself about the completion of mine clearance and readiness to begin repair works, including the dismantling of fortifications. By the way, I have just received such messages from the Ukrainian side," Sajdik said.

In addition to the issues of ceasefire and the situation in Stanytsia Luhanska, the security working group also discussed the topic of renewal of the disengagement of forces and hardware in Zolote and Petrivske.

The security working group, among other topics, continued to deal with water supply issues in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, in particular, with the financial situation and preparations for the international audit of the ‘Voda Donbasa’ company.

The humanitarian working group continued to discuss the questions related to an exchange of detainees.

The political working group, as at the previous meeting, continued to discuss the traditional topics on its agenda related to the implementation of the ‘Steinmeier formula’, amnesty and local elections in ORDO and ORLO.
