Permanent Representative of Ukraine to International Organizations in Vienna Yevhenii Tsymbaliuk said this at a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council on Thursday, January 28, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"We also call on Russia to unblock the issues, progress in which has been stalled for many months only due to the Kremlin's lack of political will, in particular, the mutual release of detainees and the opening of Zolote and Shchastia entry-exit checkpoints," he said.
The ambassador added that Ukraine joined the call by Ambassador Heidi Grau to demonstrate the political will to swiftly reach an agreement on the mutual release of detainees based on the “all for all” principle, starting with “all confirmed for all confirmed”.
"The Ukrainian side is ready to continue this process without any preliminary preconditions and within the established formats, namely the Normandy Four and the Trilateral Contact Group," Tsymbaliuk noted.
