Russia planning to send Surkov to Normandy Four talks
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said the agenda for the meeting of aides to the heads of state of the Normandy format countries (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia) is just being formed and this will be a "synchronization" effort.
"The agenda is just being formed, but first we need to synchronize watches and understand where we are – there was a big break in communication, complete stagnation in the implementation of the Minsk agreements. First, we need to conduct reconnaissance together and understand where we are," Peskov told journalists, answering a question from an UNIAN correspondent, what issues could be discussed at this meeting.
He clarified Russia would be represented by either presidential aide Yury Ushakov or Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov.
"Both options are on the table," Peskov said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Tuesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he supports immediate peace talks on Donbas in the Normandy Four format.
