The Trilateral Contact Group on resolution of the conflict in Donbas (Ukraine, Russia, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) has reached agreement on withdrawal of the weapons that are prohibited under the Minsk agreements by February 20.

Martin Sajdik, the OSCE chairperson-in-office's special representative on Ukraine, announced this after a meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to Sajdik, during discussion of the issue of the exchange of the people being held prisoner in connection with the conflict in Donbas, the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group decided ask the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine for assistance in verifying the desire of citizens to remain on the territories on which they were held prisoner after they are freed.

Sajdik said that the economic subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group also discussed the issue of water supply to Donetsk and Luhansk regions on Wednesday.

According to Sajdik, the humanitarian subgroup discussed the so-called "Steinmeier formula" (Frank-Walter Steinmeier is Germany's foreign affairs minister) during consideration of the issue of elections in Donbas.
