Future of Normandy talks depends on presidential runoff — senior Russian diplomat

"We need to wait until April 21," he said

NUR-SULTAN, April 11. /TASS/. The future of the Normandy format on Ukrainian reconciliation depends on the outcome of the presidential election runoff in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told reporters on Thursday.

"We need to wait until April 21," he said. "The result of the vote will, in many aspects, demonstrate whether there will be a boost to the process, whether the process will become more substantial or produce more result or will again return to the slow-moving and fruitless discussion, which the Ukrainian side regretfully conducted in the past few years.".
