"By the end of the working day, I have got some 'positive' news: I've tested positive for the coronavirus, but I feel fine," Yermak said.

He also announced that advisers to the Normandy leaders (Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia) have scheduled a video conference call this week [on November 13].

"This is one of my most important priorities, so there is no time to be ill at all. Although I will be self-isolating, I plan to work as usual, without slowing down. If negotiations do not take place this week, it is definitely not my fault," Yermak added.
