Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Foreign Policy and Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation, MP Bohdan Yaremenko hopes the Normandy Four leaders (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia) during their meeting may approve a road map for the Donbas peace process.

"President Zelensky remains committed to the idea of holding peace talks to end the bloodshed in Donbas. This is plan A – it doesn't change," he told journalists on the sidelines of the parliament meeting, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

According to Yaremenko, Ukraine will continue to make every possible effort to ensure that the peace talks are effective.

"In order for the meeting to be held in the Normandy format, during which it will be possible for leaders of states to discuss and, hopefully, approve the 'road map' for the peace process, it will in fact be based on the Minsk agreements, but it will probably allow us to adjust certain approaches, which have proved to be ineffective over five years," he added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the next Normandy Four summit could be held as early as this November.
