MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Kremlin does not know what plan of settling Ukraine’s crisis Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s President Francois Hollande will discuss in Kiev before coming with it to Moscow but expects it to be constructive, the presidential aide, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters on Thursday.
Kremlin is hopeful that the leaders of France and Germany have seen encouraging moments in the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest initiatives in regard to resolving the crisis in Ukraine.
"I do not know if the plan exists in the written form, but it was mentioned that there is a certain plan which Hollande and Merkel will discuss first in Kiev and then will share some of their ideas in Moscow tomorrow," Ushakov said.
"I do not know what kind of the plan it is but I hope it will pay due consideration to a great deal of our proposals, in particular integrated ones, put forward by our president in recent days," the presidential aide said.
