At the meeting of the leaders of the Normandy format will be discussed formula Steinmeier and all the points of the Minsk agreements. This at a press conference with President of Finland Sauli Niinistö on Thursday, September 12, said the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

He expressed hope that the meeting will be held in September.

As noted Zelensky, the first step was that we returned to Ukraine, the Ukrainians held in Russia.

“Formula Steinmeier and all the points of the Minsk agreements will be considered by the leaders of the four countries. We insist now that this meeting took place in September,” he said.

According to Zelensky, Ukraine is developing a map of the implementation of the Minsk agreements with specific deadlines.

He stressed that this work is in preparation for the meeting of leaders “Norman Quartet”, which is still unknown.

Separately, Zelensky said that before the summit of the “Quartet” he has no plans to meet with Vladimir Putin. “I think it (the summit) will be the closest contact with the President of Russia”, – he said.

Speaking about the release of prisoners Zelensky said, “We won’t lose a single day, waiting for a meeting in the “Normandy format”. We have another meeting of the Trilateral contact group in Minsk… and there we are discussing the stages of the return of all our prisoners. Terms and stages”.

Earlier this week it was reported that Zelensky is ready to take part in the meeting in the Normandy format in September.

Later it became known that France was in favor of holding the meeting in the Normandy format in the next few days in Paris. This was stated by Minister of foreign Affairs of France Jean-Yves Le Drian after talks in Moscow.
