Monday, 9 December, France will host a summit in the Normandy format, which will be attended by the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany Vladimir Putin, Vladimir Zelensky, Emmanuel macron and Angela Merkel.
“Tomorrow will hold talks in the “Normandy format”, and their success depends the future of the country. This day should not be politics and anti — state position only for Ukraine. The red lines are met, and our territory is returned. Support the President and believe in the victory of Ukraine!” — wrote Razumkov.
Earlier, Ukraine’s foreign Ministry affirmed Zelensky “red lines”: the inability of the elections in the Donbass, while there are “armed men and illegal armed groups”, the return of control over the border with Russia and the absence of direct talks with the militia.
“Norman format” talks on Ukraine was established in June 2014. Then, during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the landing of allied troops in Normandy, the leaders of the four countries first discussed the settlement of the conflict in the Donbass.
