After that we will begin talks about the next four breeding parties. I want to emphasize that the Ukrainian side insisted that among these items there were Debaltsevo. Because, in the Memorandum of September 19, 12 February the territory was controlled by Ukrainian military”, — said Poroshenko following the meeting of the Quartet.

The proposal of Ukraine to the list of plots for cultivation made debaltseve, was not supported by other Quartet members, denies the source of RBC, close to the Russian delegation.
