President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky supports U.S. President Joe Biden's accession to talks on the situation in Ukraine. Nonetheless, this does not mean that the Normandy format will not remain a priority for the Ukrainian side. He said this in an interview with Axios, which will be broadcasted on HBO, the press service of the Office of the President reports.

"I also said openly to our European partners: if this does not work and if everyone is not against it, I do not see a big problem in going for another format, which should include the United States and Russia, simultaneously with the Normandy format," emphasized Zelensky.
