During a conversation with US diplomat and director of the Atlantic Council Eurasia Center John Herbst, Yermak said that Zelensky did not rule out holding such talks in a video conference format.
"We think it might work ... We are expecting a reaction from the Russian side, but our American partners have taken our proposal with some interest," the President’s Office Head said.
The Kremlin has already responded to Zelensky's proposal. Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Russia had not received such proposals.
Earlier, the Ukrainian president said that the USA should play one of the main roles in the Normandy format.
At the same time, he named a condition for US participation in the summit of the Normandy quartet. According to him, America can enter the negotiations if they "will really decide something important and not just moderate the process or watch from the sidelines".
It should be noted that the Russian Foreign Ministry said that it saw no "contraindications" for the United States to join the Normandy format.
