Normandy Four talks: Result of meeting in Paris

19:09, 10 December 2019

Leaders of the Normandy Four negotiated on how to solve the conflict in eastern Ukraine. It took two pages to compose the official communique that appeared at about 1 a.m. Tuesday  The sides agreed that Ukraine and Russia have to exchange prisoners in the 35 on 35 format - by the end of the year. The full, bilateral and timeless ceasefire should be set and observed in Donbas by December 31.

The very document that appeared after the meeting has no legal power. It's merely a political agreement. It remains to be seen whether the sides will live up to ther commitments mentioned in the paper.
