"He came here to take part in bilateral talks not as a representative of the Russian Federation, he arrived as part of the trilateral format which is an important mechanism for settling the situation in the Donbas. Accordingly, this visit should be viewed exclusively in terms of his participation in the Trilateral Contact Group," Makeiev said.
