We will remind that earlier it was mentioned that the meeting of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko with EU leaders in Brussels canceled.

This was announced by the European Council.

As noted, the meeting was cancelled due to negotiations of heads of state in the Normandy format on October 19 in Berlin. The leaders of the “Norman format” will encourage Russia to perform a safe part of the Minsk agreements.

In turn, the Ukrainian President said that we should not exaggerate the expectations from the meeting of the leaders of the “Normandy format”.
