MOSCOW, January 3. /TASS/. A next meeting on Ukraine in the so-called “Normandy format” is likely to be held in Berlin on January 5 at the level of political directors, a well-informed source in the German capital told TASS on Saturday.
“Now essence and organizational moments of political directors’ meeting in ‘the Normandy format’ on resolving Ukraine’s crisis is being worked out,” he told TASS. “There exists understanding that it will be held in Berlin on January 5.”
Also, a meeting of foreign ministers may take place in the foreseeable future, the source said.
On Friday, the foreign ministers of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France discussed in a phone conversation the assistance to a process of peaceful settlement in Ukraine’s southeast and a schedule of further contacts.
