President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky authorized Roman Bezsmertnyi to represent Ukraine in the working subgroup on political affairs of the Trilateral Contact Group on tackling the situation in Donbas instead of Oleksandr Motsyk. This is stated in Zelensky’s decree of July 9.
Earlier, Zelensky with his decree of June 19 re-appointed three authorized representatives of Ukraine in the working subgroups of the Trilateral Contact Group on the peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbas. In particular, Oleksandr Motsyk was authorized to represent Ukraine in the subgroup on political issues.
In 2015, Roman Bezsmertnyi was appointed a representative of Ukraine in the political subgroup of Trilateral Contact Group. In April 2016, he left the Minsk process.
