“Such a meeting most probably won’t happen today,” the interlocutor told Interfax-Ukraine on Sunday at the Munich Security Conference.
Previously, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said that the meeting would happen late on Friday or on Saturday. Klimkin and his Russian counterpart Lavrov held a separate meeting in Munich, during which they discussed prisoner exchange and deploying a UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas.
According to Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, the negotiations were fruitless as they haven’t reached a consensus on a peacekeeping mission.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, however, said that they had a comprehensive discussion with Klimkin and discussed everything, so he didn’t even know if it was worth it to gather in the Normandy format.
