Gerashchenko was Nosirova a meeting of political advisers to the leaders of the “Norman format”

First Deputy speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s representative in the Trilateral contact group (TCG) on the settlement of the situation in the Donbass Irina Gerashchenko announced a meeting in the “Normandy format” (Ukraine, France, Germany, Russia) at the level of political advisers in August to discuss the preparation of negotiations of leaders of States.

“Now we are talking about meeting in person in August, political adviser to the President”, – she told in interview “to 5 channel”.

Key aspects of the negotiations will be the implementation of the agreements of the leaders of “Norman Quartet” in a recent telephone conversation, in particular the stabilization of the security situation, but also to discuss the possibility of holding meetings at the level of heads of state.

“I do not exclude that the game of the Kremlin lies in the fact that Germany goes into elections, which they have in September, and perhaps Russia is trying to block these private meetings. … It seems to me that Russia tried to pause the “Norman format”, including elections in France, given the elections in Germany, because there you need to answer very unpleasant questions regarding the security situation, concerning the involvement of the Russian army and weapons to this conflict,” she suggested.
