Donetsk, Mar 17 – DAN. The video conference of the Contact Group kicked off on Wednesday after a two-hour delay caused by the Kiev's delegation disruptive attitude, the DPR Foreign Ministry said.

"The Contact Group began its meeting with a two-hour delay caused by the Ukrainian delegation disruptive behavior and irrelevant demands. Based on that, we conclude that the Ukrainian delegation is determined to derail the talks, especially in what concerns political settlement. Nevertheless, we are ready to work on all the tracks and will insist on the full-fledged discussion of all the issues on the agenda," the statement reads.

The meetings of the four subgroups took place on Tuesday. Political group meeting was derailed by Kiev's delegation from the very beginning. *ot*pp
