At the same time, Peskov noted that Russia would consider this question.
“I am not ready to answer, this is a brand new format. We have to realize the prospects of this meeting, understand the new proposed format,” Peskov explained.
“The thing is that the U.S. is not involved in the Normandy process, and what do to with Minsk Agreements which Normandy process participants signed. And the U.S. representatives did not,” Kremlin informed.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky offered his Russian colleague Vladimir Putin to hold talks on Donbas in Minsk with the involvement of the representatives of the U.S., France, Great Britain.
As it was reported, President of Russia Vladimir Putin thought that the dialogue with the Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky is possible as he establishes the direct contacts with the representatives of the Russian occupation authorities in Donbas. Moreover, Zelensky should stop to call them separatists.
