Ceasefire and withdrawal of the troops in Donbas will be discussed during the Normandy format summit. Minister of Foreign Affairs Vadym Prystaiko stated that on the air of Inter TV channel.

"Which issues will be discussed? First of all, connected with the security: how to finish shellings, how to withdraw the troops, how to create conditions for the peace. How after all these places (Stanytsia Luhanska, Zolote and Petrivske) to come through the all 400 kilometers, withdraw the troops and try to create the conditions for the further successful work. We may open new border crossings for this," Prystaiko explained.
