A meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group's working subgroup on security dedicated to the settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine is planned to be held in Minsk on May 19.

Deputy head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) Alexander Hug said at a briefing on Friday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"The sides have agreed that the agreements on the withdrawal of tanks, 100-mm mortars and the documents on cease-fire in Shyrokyne are to be finalized by this date," Hug said.

Ukraine is represented by former defense minister Yevhen Marchuk in the working group on security. The group is headed by Ertugrul Apakan, the chief monitor of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (OSCE SMM).

The Contact Group's working subgroup on economics met in Minsk on Thursday, May 14. The self-proclaimed 'DPR' said the Trilateral Contact Group will only meet after meetings of all four working groups have been held.
