Donetsk, Nov 23 – DAN.  The representatives of Ukraine in the Contact Group subgroup on economic issues have again disrupted the meeting scheduled for today, DPR delegation to Minsk talks head's press secretary said.

"Despite LPR and DPR reps numerous attempts to unblock the subgroup's work, Ukrainian side still insists their refusal to cooperate is lawful, though they try now and then to settle some issues behind the scenes," Victoria Talakina said.

On Wednesday, Kiev representatives ignored the meeting of the economic subgroup for the sixth time running and did not turn up without providing any reasons.

"Denis Pushilin emphasized the necessity to resume the subgroups' work and the importance of economic issues, and the Republic's eagerness to settle them," she said.

Earlier LPR envoy to Minsk negotiations Vladislav Deinego said that Kiev had disrupted economic subgroup meeting failing to attend it.
