“The meeting is scheduled for Friday, Aug.1. These will not be consultations
on a peaceful settlement. A very narrow range of issues is to be
discussed there. This could rather be called a meeting between
representatives of the self-proclaimed republics and the Ukrainian
side,” the source said.
The consultations will focus on two issues, the source said. “The
first of them is the exchange of captives, and the second is likely to
be the provision of security of experts working at the Malaysian Boeing
crash site,” he said.
