WARSAW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Pyotr Poroshenko, the Ukrainian candy industry captain who emerged victorious from Ukraine’s presidential election May 25, said Wednesday he did not rule out the possibility of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the D-Day anniversary celebrations in Normandy.
“As for now, I don’t have a meeting with Putin on my itinerary,” Poroshenko told a news conference here.
He said however that the meeting might be held in one or another format all the same.
Putin’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said somewhat earlier there were no plans for a separate meeting between Putin and Poroshenko.
“No one is preparing a separate meeting,” he said, adding however that the two leaders might have contacts during general official functions in Normandy somehow.
June 6, President Putin will take part in the celebrations devoted to the 70th anniversary since the D-Day. This will be his first visit to Western Europe since the outbreak of the crisis in Ukraine.
