Summary of Disinformation

Kyiv is sabotaging the work of the Minsk Trilateral Group, announced the so-called human rights commissioner of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova. She claimed that Ukrainian representatives boycotted the last meeting which took place in Minsk on 19 September.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative.

According to Daryna Olifer, spokeswoman for Leonid Kuchma, Ukraine’s representative to the Trilateral Group, Ukrainian representatives actively participated in the last trilateral group meeting. During the negotiations the Ukrainian side insisted on additional security measures in the Donbas region running up to the November elections that the separatist enclaves have decided to hold, elections which both Ukraine and the OSCE say contradict the terms of the Minsk accords. OSCE statement here.

The self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics have announced they will be holding elections on November 11. Ukraine, the European Union and the OSCE have condemned the move saying it violates the Minsk negotiation process.
