On the eve of the Normandy format summit, the United States assured Ukraine of its support in striving to achieve peace in Donbas in negotiations with the Russian Federation. The corresponding statement was made by the US Embassy in Ukraine.
"The United States assures its unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine on the eve of the Normandy format meeting. The United States will work with allies and partners to continue to force Russia to fulfill its commitments and begin the process of peaceful restoration of Ukraine's full sovereignty in Donbas," said in a statement by American diplomats.
The U.S. Embassy has promised that Washington will support Ukraine as long as it fights Russian aggression, strengthens the rule of law, creates a healthy investment climate, reformed the defense sector, fights disinformation.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the Normandy format meeting is already a victory, but he seeks to return with a concrete result. He stated this during the Freedom of Speech talk show.

“I want to return with specific things, with a concrete result. But we understand that we will not succeed in everything. The meeting is already a victory. We have unblocked it for 3 years, since 2016 there has been no dialogue, and therefore there was not even the opportunity to talk about ending the war. That's what I'm waiting for, what I'm looking for and really want to find," the president said.

Zelensky added he hoped for the support of other participants in the meeting. "I really want to believe that Germany and France will support us. And if something goes wrong, I will do everything for them to be on our side. Whatever it is, they say they believe that Europe supports Ukraine because we are right, "he said.
