MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. The new meeting between the leaders of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine, the so-called Normandy Four, is not yet under consideration, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Monday.
“The meeting of (French President Francois) Hollande, Russian President Vladimir (Putin), (German Chancellor Angela) Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is not yet being considered,” Ushakov said.
The so-called “Normandy format” was established in June when Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko discussed the Ukrainian crisis on the sidelines of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day in Normandy, France.
The latest meeting of the Normandy Four was held in Italy’s Milan in mid-October.
