BERLIN, October 19. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Berlin for a meeting with the three other members of the Normandy Quartet over a settlement in Donbass. The talks will be held at the office of the federal chancellor.
The possibility of another round of direct talks by the leaders of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine had remained in question up to the last moment. It was agreed on the eve of the summit.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said several days of efforts by the leaders’ aides made the meeting possible.
Moscow does not expect a breakthrough at the forthcoming round of talks in Berlin, though. Kiev’s compliance with the Minsk Accords would be the ideal outcome.
