“We do not see any changes in the situation that would facilitate the preparation of the Norman Four summit,” RIA Novosti quotes Peskov.

He noted that the agreements on the redeployment of forces in the areas of the settlements of Zolotoy and Petrovsky are not being implemented. According to him, also in Kiev there is a contradictory attitude to the Steinmeier formula.

Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said he was looking forward to holding a meeting of Norman leaders in the near future. According to him, Kiev has completed its part to resume the work of the Quartet.

Earlier, Germany and France said they were counting on progress in resolving the situation in the Donbass after a meeting of leaders of Norman-format countries.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Zelensky in a telephone conversation on October 9 confirmed that the conditions for organizing this summit have been met.
