Normandy Four meeting (Ukraine, German, France and Russia) and Minsk Talks actually halted due to German elections in September and in France in May as Iryna Gerashchenko the vice speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament and the country’s envoy in Minsk talk group reports at Facebook.
‘Germany enters elections period and the new president’s office in France will be only formed in the near months. So, they will have no time for external policy, at least for Donbas. External policy institutions in the USA are only forming now. Putin makes use of all these factors because Normandy Four is halted and it influences Minsk Talks, she noted.
Earlier Dmitriy Peskov Russian Presidential Press Secretary claimed that leaders’ meeting in Normandy Four cannot be held until the end of the French elections.
