Gerashchenko: during the negotiations, “Norman Quartet” will not be easy for Putin to talk about “nastanet” in the Donbass
During the upcoming telephone conversations of the leaders of “Norman Quartet” Russian President Vladimir Putin must be difficult to insist that no Russian troops in the Donbas.
This was stated on their own page in Facebook the head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee for European integration, representative of the President of Ukraine on peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donetsk and Lugansk regions Irina Gerashchenko.
“Today, Mr. Volcker along with the US Ambassador in Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, with other colleagues in the Donbass. Calls a spade a spade is not a frozen conflict. This hot phase of the war being waged against Ukraine. This is a very important word and an important and honest assessment of the situation with our partners. Tomorrow is the first telephone conversations in the Normandy format in a long time, first with the new French President of the Macron, which did not lead to Putin’s attempts to put “channel” on pause. Somehow, I think that Putin will not be easy to sing his favorite song about “nastanet”, – stated in the message.

Gerashchenko added that Ukraine is the key – “security issues and the release of the hostages”.
“You really want progress and promotion in these matters. Our Minsk talks, which will take place on 31 July (Skype – conference on hostages) and August 2 (all others, except for humanitarian groups) will largely depend on the results of Norman phone conference,” she concluded.
