On the occasion of the anniversary of the Normandy format summit in Paris, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assures that “we’ll make it” although the path towards peace is not easy.
“The path towards peace is not easy but I know that we’ll make it,” the Head of State posted on Twitter.
He also published a photo of the four leaders of the Normandy format taken at the negotiating table in Paris in 2019.
Meanwhile, the Kremlin ruled out the possibility of a meeting between President of Russia Vladimir Putin and President Zelensky in the near future.
As a Russian media report, this was announced by President Putin’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.
According to him, no one needs a meeting for the sake of a meeting. Peskov noted that a meeting of heads of state should be well prepared and the presidential aides are dealing with this issue.
“But they need some substance that can be clung to, to string some understanding on it, and we have no substance here,” Peskov said.
In his opinion, such a “substance” could be the implementation of the agreements reached at the Normandy format summit in Paris.
