President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stressed that Kyiv is doing everything to make the meeting in the “Norman format”.
"The conditions of the meeting of the Norman Four were three conditions - the confirmation of the text of the" Steinmeier formula "and the deployment of troops in Golden and Petrovsky. We, for our part, started breeding in Katerynivka. If everything is safe in Petrovsky within a week, then on November 4 we should start breeding in Petrovsky, "Zelensky said.
"So I have no doubt that we will have a meeting if all parties want and want to meet in the Norman format, because the main result is an agreement to end the war," he added.
The Russian side thinks differently. Thus, Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the "Norman Four" would not meet, "as the requirements of one of the parties are constantly changing."
Recall that Vadim Prystayko said that Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany could meet in Paris in November if the pro-Russian separatists and Ukraine cease fire in the East.
