"Lieutenant-General Askarov and Lieutenant General Lentsov reported that they reached agreement on the terms of cease-fire, which, in their opinion, should come into force Dec. 9 at 8:00 a.m.," the OSCE report reads.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the 'day of silence' in the ATO area should start Dec. 9. The next meeting of the tripartite contact group on the situation in the east of Ukraine is planned to be held in Minsk on Dec. 9.
The DPR militants have set Kyiv additional conditions for their participation in the Minsk talks. They demanded to confirm the agenda, one of the points of which is lifting of the economic blockade of the Donbas.
Earlier, the DPR terrorists have also put forward their own terms of negotiations: they wanted the talks to be held Friday, Dec 12, instead of Tuesday, Dec 9. They also advocated the negotiations to be carried out without participation of Western countries, which, in the terrorists' opinion are "sponsors of the Donbas people genocide."
