The Kremlin calls not to overexaggerate expectations ahead of a Normandy Four leaders' summit in Paris.
"We earlier said: Let's not inflate our expectations from the meeting in the Normandy format. At the same time, there is reason to hope that a substantive conversation will take place," Russian President Vladimir Putin's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists, as reported by an UNIAN correspondent in Russia on November 29.
Peskov emphasized that the "law on local government" in the temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (eastern Ukraine) is "an integral part of the Minsk agreements, while any decision to drift towards some other document is fraught with very great difficulties and consequences for the settlement process, which can be hardly predicted now."
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Normandy Four summit (of the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France, Germany) in Paris scheduled for December 9.
