Ukraine's top diplomat Dmytro Kuleba called for broad EU sanctions against Russia

The agreement of all partakers, including Russia, is necessary to extend the Normandy Format as RBK-Ukraine reported citing Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

“The extension of the Normandy Format demands agreement of all partakers of the format, first of all, Russia. If at this stage the change of the structure of the Normandy Format is impossible, we urge our friends and partners to help us, as well as France and Russia to put pressure on Russia to make its behavior constructive in the Normandy Format,” Kuleba added.

According to him, Normandy Format continues to function; however, Ukraine would like it to be more effective.

As we reported, considering the fact that the agreements on the comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas reached in July 2020 were violated at the beginning of 2021, while talks in the Normandy Format do not bring a desirable result, Ukraine’s President offered to change the diplomatic approach and enhance the role of the U.S. in the peace process.
