The statement by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that all the heads of the Normandy Four countries agreed to hold a meeting is not true. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko announced this in a comment to RIA Novosti.
"I will say that this is not true," he said, adding that at the September 11 advisory talks in Berlin, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Russian President Dmitry Kozak "clearly stated" that there was no reason for a new summit.
As a reminder, following the meeting of advisers to the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany in Berlin, the parties agreed to continue dialogue on all issues of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine and by the end of September to work out agreed solutions. At the same time, Kozak said that the "stumbling block" in the negotiations remains the position of the majority in the Verkhovna Rada, which is Kiev's desire to move away from the Minsk agreements.
