The Kremlin does not mind holding a Normandy format meeting to resolve the situation in Donbas, but such a meeting requires careful preparation, which will guarantee a political result. This was announced by Yuriy Ushakov, Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation, reports TASS.

"We basically support this idea, but we believe that if a summit is held, then it should be carefully prepared so that it is clear: by going to this summit, we will achieve politically important results. We would not want a meeting without its thorough preparation," Ushakov said.

He added that Donbas-related issues will be discussed during negotiations with the French president on August 19.
