The question of restoration of Ukraine's border control will become a topic for discussion at the Normandy Four meeting in Paris. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said so at the briefing with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

According to the head of the state, the parties will discuss the format of local elections in the temporarily occupied areas. Zelensky claimed that the voting should take place only according to the Ukrainian law.

The Ukrainian side also plans to negotiate the all-for-all prisoners exchange with Russia-backed mercenaries who remain in control of the occupied Donbas.
