Russian side opposes her participation
The session of Minsk Trilateral Contact Group will take place in the Belarusian capital on Wednesday, June 1. A correspondent of 112 Ukraine TV channel reported this.
"Some journalists expect Nadiya Savchenko, MP and Ukraine's fighter pilot, to come to Minsk today. Ukraine's Temporary Envoy in Belarus Valeriy Dzhyhun assumed there is a chance she might visit Minsk for negotiations with the Group. Reporters tried to reach Savchenko herself, but she abstained from giving any answers", the reporter said.
He added that Savchenko,s participation could give a new impetus to the negotiations about exchanging prisoners, which seem to have been stalled; however, the Russian side said they were not fine with Savchenko's participation in the negotiations.
Apart from the session of the Minsk group, all of its four subgroups will gather as well to discuss political, economic, humanitarian and security issues.
