When asked by journalists whether Ukraine should initiate a revision of the Minsk agreements in order to establish peace in Donbas, the President said: “My attitude to ‘Minsk’ is very simple: we must split it into details, outline all the steps, link them to the dates and fulfill. We stand for such a format. That's what we did”.
According to him, political advisers to the leaders of the "Normandy Four" worked on the development of the document with specific dates and deadlines for the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"Now the latest version of this document has been sent to all parties. We expect that the parties will accept this document in the near future, and then there will be an opportunity to bring the meeting of the ‘Normandy Four’ closer,” Zelensky said.
The President also stated that Ukraine adheres to all the agreements reached with his participation during the meeting of leaders of the Normandy format in December 2019 in Paris.

Zelensky also reminded that according to the agreements, a regime of silence was declared on July 27.
