Kuleba stressed that the country continues to work hard to revive the Normandy format, with Germany and France as mediators.

"We call on Russia to take a constructive part in diplomatic efforts for a peaceful settlement instead of undermining them," he added.

Kuleba added that at the same time, Ukrainian diplomats continued to work to strengthen the country's defense capabilities in order to deter Russia from its further aggressive actions.
