The foreign Ministry voiced expectations from the Normandy meeting

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim pristayko

Vadim pristayko said that certain agreements have been reached before the meeting, however, it is hoped that the meeting will be “breakthrough”.

All parties to the negotiations in the “Normandy format” has already approved a summary of the official document – the communiqué, but in the case of “breakthrough” will be promptly prepared a new document. This was stated by the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim pristayko in an interview with RBC-Ukraine, which was published on Monday, November 18.

“There are two approaches. First – let’s control our expectations and not to set overly ambitious objectives, then, not finding the way of their implementation, we did not say that progress had not been achieved, and we even rolled back. This is a cautious approach that is fixed in the short communiqué, about which we talked. This document was written, all four parties agreed to it, it is a working document, which the foreign advisers of heads of state offer their leaders. If during the conversation the leaders will reach some kind of breakthrough, and we would like to hope for it, then promptly new document should be prepared. For example, all four leaders will come to what is necessary to end the war, and there are three or four steps that need to be done. This is the perfect scenario, but now our expectations are based on the lowest possible option,” said Pristayko.

Pristayko said that by the time the meeting is to be held, the return of Ukrainian ships captured in the Kerch Strait.

Next meeting of “Normandy four” should give impetus to the work of the Trilateral contact group in Minsk.

“We give a new impetus to the Minsk group. The leaders agreed, and determined that following such directions. Now negotiate in Minsk, create subgroups, for example, the transfer of border control of Ukraine, and for some time show us the solution how to achieve this. The second in the Humanities group to be done before such and such time the exchange of all for all. Will resolve existing humanitarian problems, prepare for a possible election. All four sub-groups: security, political, economic and humanitarian, I think they will be given directions that they are for a reasonable period of work will have to show the result,” said Pristayko, noting that after that we can sum up the next stage.

We will remind, in the Office of the President of Ukraine said that the meeting in the Normandy format could be held on 9 December.
