Ukrainian Foreign Minister doubts April meeting in Norman format


Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadim Pristayko said that the meeting in the so-called Norman format, scheduled for April, may not take place. At the same time, Priestayko explained his “fears” about this.


According to the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, he does not see any preparation for a future meeting, which was previously agreed in France.

Mr. Pristayko reminded reporters that the parties had been preparing for the meeting for about six months between the leaders of 4 states (Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany) in December.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadim Priestayko:

Now about 2 months remain. I do not see any preparation. Maybe this time it will be faster. And maybe we will make much more progress. Sorry, but I doubt it.

That is, Priestayko doubted not only that the meeting in the Norman format would be held in April, but also that such a meeting could bring results.

This very statement from the Foreign Minister of Ukraine actually says that Kiev is not interested in discussing issues related to the problems of Donbass. Accordingly, it is not entirely clear how with this approach it is possible to agree on something with the Ukrainian side.

    After the Norman meeting, the situation in the Donbass not only did not improve, but deteriorated seriously. Priystayko simply spreads straws under his department, anticipating that the failure of the Ukrainian side to fulfill a single undertaken obligation creates a real condition for unwillingness to meet with them and not only representatives of Russia, but also Germany and France. Because it is already difficult to cover Ukrainian indifference to fulfillment of its obligations with “love” for Ukraine Merkel and Macron.

      Ukraine is guaranteed to be forced to negotiate exclusively by boilers.
      No boilers - no "formats"

        Almost yes. Failure to fulfill election promises, failure to fulfill Paris obligations, adoption of a law on the sale of land, increase in utility tariffs, loss of trust of European and American puppeteers, betrayal of their "parent" and sponsor - the bloody Beni, as a result of which the escape of officials from ministries and the administration is gaining momentum, rating drop by 20%, not counting the smaller blunders in politics and economics. "Hence the lice."

          There are jesters. Smart people.
          There are clowns. Also far from fools.
          And there are puppets. There is nothing to say about their mental abilities.
          So here he is a clown in the body of a puppet, who thought that now she would increase her mind and no one would pull the strings, but was deeply mistaken

      Meeting for the sake of meeting, to raise the rating of Zelensky and for nothing is not needed! By the way, “to the question of the birds!” U-Kroinsky Naftogaz wants Gazprom again to bring forward a car of claims worth billions of dollars! Freebie pr pr taste-milk Russia! It was necessary for Gazprom not to pay anything and to lead the pipe by Denmark itself, and not to conclude a new, shameful contract with the blackmailers for another 5 years.

          In the meantime, Trump’s elections will not be held - nothing will change in Ukraine. Alas.
          After the election, he will begin to stir up a "deal." Then maybe something will change.

      Why meet, look at each other? The meaning of the meetings, if from the previous agreements only one point of exchange of prisoners was implemented.

        One of the exchanges provided for in paragraph of the Minsk agreements. By the way, from the Ukrainian side, for the most part, they did not change prisoners from the LDP at all, but Ukrainian political prisoners. Simply captured earlier by the hostages, as they cynically put it, "exchange fund."

    Given that Priestayko’s entire track record is somehow related to cooperation with Canada, the United States and NATO, there is every reason to believe that he will work out the ideas of the above entities. Then his statements on the implementation of the Minsk agreements, on the upcoming meeting, become clear. The US does not seek to resolve the situation in the Donbass. Their main goal is the maximum disintegration of Ukraine and Russia. In parallel, the United States is doing everything possible to destroy the economic potential of Ukraine, so that in the future it would not be of interest to Russia, and in the case of the settlement of political processes would become a stone on the neck of the Russian economy. And yes, they, these US actions, are quite successful in this direction. And according to the Norman format - this is solid masturbation. Time will be killed, there will be no use for the peace process. Zelensky is not a person who could resist the American line prescribed for Ukraine.

    What's the point? You signed the Shtanmaer formula last time - you were FORCED to sign it based on the results. And the last time there was a meeting - only on your initiative, you have been crying since August. As a result, you were bent and forced to sign obligations. in which the first point - the termination of the database and the withdrawal of troops - you did nothing.

      And nobody knows, it’s really possible to agree. And so, I think, to return the Crimea to them, to admit that we are fighting in the Donbas, to recognize the Holodomor, to gas — transit to tear up gas, and to them gas at 40 cu 1000 cubic meters, compensation for the occupation of Ukraine and other wet dreams.

    Not only that. Now no one will give V. Zelensky a hand.

    “The whole European Union was the Hitler coalition in the past or those who bowed to it. There was not a single country opposing Hitler. France was defeated, and its factories worked for Germany.

    That's who is judging us right now. And they tell us when it was necessary to free Auschwitz, they tell us about equal responsibility - those who attacked us, who were with Hitler.

    And the fact that Zelensky declared equal responsibility yesterday — a man born in the Soviet Union — is monstrous blasphemy. I don’t think that now he will be a handshake for anyone who cherishes the memory of the Great Victory. "

      "My grandfather, who died in the war, called me
      And he asked: "Tell those who remain in the country,
      Which I saved that my entire regiment mourned,
