Belarus is set to host a new round of Ukrainian peace talks this week.
Envoys from Kiev, Russia, and OSCE reps will attend the talks, which will be held on Wednesday and Friday.
The Ukrainian president has issued a statement saying that the dates were discussed in a phone conversation between the French, Russian, and German heads of state. Petro Poroshenko added that the leaders highlighted the need to implement the next steps of a ceasefire plan approved by Kiev and pro-Russian fighters in September.
The first round of talks in Minsk produced no concrete results, with the two sides accusing each other of violating the terms of the accord. Ukraine and its Western allies blame Russia for stoking the deadly conflict. But Russia has time and again denied that it is involved in the crisis.
