“The meeting of the advisers had to take place on March 12 but due to the quarantine, it was postponed. We will hold a phone talk the next week at the level of the advisers; we will also discuss the date of the possible summit of the leaders,” he said.
Yermak also noted that the summit should take place in Berlin, most likely, in April 2020.
Earlier, the Trilateral contact group for the solution of Donbas conflict (Minsk talks group) agreed on the creation of an advisory board. It will comprise of representatives of Ukraine and self-proclaimed 'republics' of Donbas (ten from each, with the right for decisive vote), Germany, France and the OSCE (one from each, with the right for conciliatory vote).
Besides, Deputy Head of the Administration of the President of Russia Dmitry Kozak believes that the creation of the Advisory Board at the Trilateral Contact group with the participation of the representatives of the Normandy Format will enable the dialogue of Kyiv and Donbas.
