However, the diplomat admitted that the exact date of the meeting yet. Meshkov said that the parties will try to arrange a meeting during the summer holidays, i.e. in July.

We will remind that the previous meeting of Council held on 30 March. During the whole of last year, the NRC met only three times. Thus before the beginning of the conflict in the East of Ukraine, the Council has worked on a regular basis, going several times a month.
