If the Normandy talks parties fail to agree on the implementation of the Steinmeier formula, the Ukrainian government will not return to this plan and seek another option instead. President Volodymyr Zelensky said that during the press marathon in Kyiv.
"If I feel there's no dialogue, there will be no deal. I'll say this in an open during the Normandy format session. If I feel that everybody is ready to do something to stop the war, we will be doing this; we will discuss the format of disengagement of forces and so on (...)", Zelensky said.
"If I feel that we won't be able to control the election or the border... if I feel it, this government will not get back to this plan, and we'll seek another option", he said.
