The Normandy format of negotiations can not give the desired result because of the Russian position. This was stated by Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in an interview to ZN.UA.
"Today there is no effective replacement to Normandy format as this format - this is not only people, there are countries, in particular Germany and France, who invested a lot in this perspective - both at the level of Chancellor and the President, and on the level of Foreign Ministers," said Klimkin.
With regard to the foreign ministers of Normandy Quartet Klimkin said that he sees that Steinmeier and Hérault care about the fate of those affected by the Russian aggression in Donbas.
"So we traveled to Donbas. And when you're talking there in a helicopter, then you go and you see everything around, talk to people - all this gives a certain emotional burden, and I have seen how Steinmeier and Hérault were not indifferent in communication with those who have been forced to leave their homes, they listen to the human stories ", said the Minister.
