The negotiators talk of the modalities of the probable elections in Donbas

The Triliteral contact group in Minsk discusses only modalities of the probable election in Russia-occupied Donbas, not a certain draft bill on it, the Verkhovna Rada deputy speaker Iryna Herashenko wrote on her Facebook page. 

The Ukrainian parliament holds informal discussions on the Minsk negotiation process, she also noted. 

"The MPs were interested in the methodology of the OSCE observing mission and monitoring they conduct, many of the questions touched the political framework of the group. In Minsk, only modalities of the future elections are discussed, not a draft bill," Herashenko wrote.
