BENAULIM, October 15. /TASS/. The date and venue of the meeting of leaders in the Normandy format (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) are still being discussed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"No, nothing has changed," Peskov said. "The situation remains as it was."
Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said on Thursday the possibility of a meeting of the leaders in the Normandy format on October 19 would become clear within the next two days.
Germany proposed holding an informal lunch on October 19 with the participation of the Normandy Four group leaders, he said. This proposal remains on table, but its implementation depends on the extent to which the parties will manage to agree by the summit on concrete progress in the settlement in Ukraine, Ushakov added. The aides to the Normandy Four leaders "will be directly looking into this now - today - tomorrow".
At their meeting in February of 2015 in Belarusian capital Minsk, the Normandy Four leaders approved a plan for the settlement in Ukraine. However, Russia has repeatedly stressed that the Kiev authorities fail to abide by many of its points.
