President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has removed Roman Bezsmertnyy from the political subgroup of the trilateral contract group on a Donbas settlement.

The decree to this effect has been published on the president's website.

Bezsmertnyy joined the group on 9 July to replace the former US ambassador to the USA, Oleksandr Motsyk.

In 2015-2016, Bezsmertnyy represented Ukraine in the same subgroup. He left it over disagreements with then President Petro Poroshenko.
