According to Olifer, the Trilateral Contact Group noted that the regime of silence that was announced on July 21 has generally had a beneficial effect on the security situation in Donbas and that its observance is important in the context of the start of a new school year.

Ukraine’s representatives in the Trilateral Contact Group informed the representative of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in the Trilateral Contact Group, Martin Sajdik, about the fulfillment of the obligation to complete the clearance of mines near the bridge in Stanytsia Luhanska and stated Ukraine’s readiness to begin repairing the crossing point on August 22.

The TCG representatives agreed that all the work on the bridge should be performed in close coordination with the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.

They also stated that water supplies and return of Ukrainian state and private property on the non-government-controlled territory in Donetsk and Lugansk regions to their owners should be prioritized.
