Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that before the next meeting in the "Normandy format" to be held in April, Ukraine should make a number of key legislative decisions to strengthen its position in the negotiations. He told so on the TV channel Inter.

According to him, it is important for Kyiv that the Russian side agreed to the next meeting in the spring, as agreed at the summit in Paris.

“In order for us not only to meet, but to miss some unnecessary moments for us and come to the following real solutions, we need to do a certain homework, which we were going to do: coordinate the legal framework of all our agreements,” Prystaiko said.

The Minister specified that these are four laws that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about.

"This is a question of amnesty, and the issue of holding elections, and the issue of special status - all these issues must be solved," he added.

According to Prystaiko, the more Ukraine can do before the next meeting in the “Normandy format”, the stronger will be its position in the negotiations.

As we reported, Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Vadym Prystaiko discussed the technical aspect of holding elections in Donbas with the head of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights. The relevant meeting took place in the margins of the OSCE Foreign Ministers' Council meeting, which took place in Bratislava on December 5.
