"The best illustration of the state of implementation of the 2019 Normandy Summit decision is the opening of checkpoints in Schastia and Zolote. Ukraine has done everything and opened these checkpoints, but they are still closed on the other side. We are convinced that in order to get the matter under way, the summit of the Normandy Four is needed. Despite all the efforts made at other levels, we understand that for the next step forward, a decision is needed, which must be reached at the table with [Russia President] Vladimir Putin," Kuleba said.

As we reported earlier, previous negotiations between advisers to the leaders of the Normandy Four countries (Ukraine, Russia, Germany, France) were postponed due to a fire at the elderly home in Kharkiv, which killed 15 people. 

"The meeting was postponed because President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and the management of the office are in Kharkiv, where 15 people died in a fire yesterday," the statement said.

He added that international partners had responded to the request of the Ukrainian side with understanding.
