Earlier, on May 5, Zelenskyy approved the new composition of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG, having appointed Reznikov as its first deputy head.

The new delegation attracted journalists Serhii Harmash and Denys Kazanskyi, lawyer Vadym Horan and doctor Kostiantyn Libster to the work of TCG on a permanent basis as representatives of the occupied Donbas.
