Ukraine-France-Germany talks to take place soon – Reznikov

Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksii Reznikov assumes that negotiations in the Ukraine-France-Germany format will take place in the near future.

Reznikov said this on the air of Savik Shuster's Freedom of Speech TV program on Friday evening, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I think there will soon be a conversation between the three leaders of the Normandy format countries, without the participation of a Kremlin representative," the minister said.

He also added that he perceived Russia's escalation in eastern Ukraine as an element of an information war, which is an integral part of hybrid warfare.

As reported, on April 5, Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak assured that consultations within the Normandy format were ongoing and announced negotiations between Ukraine, Germany and France.

On March 30, President of France Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of Russia Vladimir Putin held a conversation through video conferencing, one of the topics of which was the situation in eastern Ukraine. The leaders of France and Germany, in particular, stressed that Russia needed to commit itself to ensuring the ceasefire in Donetsk and Luhansk regions and helping overcome the crisis in compliance with the Minsk Agreements.

Later, President’s Spokesperson Iuliia Mendel said in a comment to Ukrinform that Ukraine continued negotiations with all countries of the Normandy format and no decisions regarding Ukraine could and would be made without Ukraine's participation.
