One of the main points of this theme is dividing political and humanitarian issues during negotiations.

‘The main problem of the Minsk agreements is the union of political and humanitarian issues in one process. This leads to the fact that humanitarian issues (such as the release of captives) are used for political purposes,’ said Nadia Volkova.

The press conference will follow a detailed discussion on the already mentioned earlier theme.
