It is important for Zelensky that the other two leaders of the so-called "Normandy Four", Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron put pressure on Putin. He noted that the leaders of France and Germany support Ukraine, but he still is concerned that Macron is striving for closer ties with Moscow.
"You cannot play this game on two fronts," Zelensky commented on Macron's foreign policy.
As we reported before, the new Normandy Format Summit may take place after the fulfillment of the decisions of December meeting, but there is no sufficient progress yet.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that “the statement of Kyiv on the holding of the Normandy Summit in April is notjing more than the wish of Kyiv”.
“Russia does not observe yet the progress in the fulfillment of the decisions of the Normandy Summit in Paris,” Lavrov stated.
