BERLIN, October 20. /TASS/. The foreign ministers of the Normandy Four countries (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) are tasked with immediately starting preparations for election in Donbass, French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday after talks in Berlin.

"Among other things, we discussed Donbass election. This will be the main task for our (foreign) ministers for the next few days," Hollande said talking about the main points of the roadmap on the implementation of the Minsk Agreements.

"The roadmap will be coordinated by the foreign ministers of the Normandy Four," he continued. "It will be devised with observance of all points of the Minsk Agreements. It was important to move forward on several matters, in particular on security, humanitarian and political issues," the French president noted.

"Immediate and full ceasefire should be ensured, along with weaponry withdrawal, and parts of Ukrainian territory should be established that still have difficulties with implementing these decisions," he said. "In security matters, we need to avoid those misunderstandings that happened last summer," Hollande added.

In the humanitarian sphere, among top priorities are issues connected with prisoners and ensuring the access of people in east Ukraine to social services," he said.

Hollande stressed that "summit in the Normandy format is the only framework, in which the Ukrainian problem may be resolved effectively.".
