Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that Ukraine is ready to hold a Normandy meeting at the level of foreign ministers. He said this during a briefing with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

“We are ready to hold a meeting of foreign ministers in the Normandy format. We hope that Lavrov (Russian Foreign Minister - ed.) will also constructively and conscientiously approach this meeting. We will also work on the Normandy format summit," noted Kuleba.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that there is no progress in the Normandy format yet. At the same time, he noted that pressure from other countries should remain on the Russian Federation.

At the same time, German Chancellor Angela Merkel noted the stagnation in the Normandy format and called for the resumption of meetings within its framework.
