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.
As we reported earlier, the next joint meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas is scheduled to take place on February 3.
The parties will discuss the implementation of the Minsk agreements and the results reached during the Paris summit. The issues of disengagement of forces, demining of the territories, and the establishment of truce are also on the agenda.
