The warring sides of the Donbas conflict should cease fire, withdraw the heavy weaponry and clear the mines, planted in the combat area. Leaders of the Normandy Four came to respective solutions during the meeting in Berlin – the first one in a year and a half.

The interlocutors also discussed the deployment of UN peacekeeping mission in eastern Ukraine. The meeting lasted for four hours. Nevertheless, Ukraine and Russia still have not reached any consensus on key points.
