No disengagement – no Normandy format – Zelensky

The Ukrainian party must 100% control the Ukrainian-Russian border in the Donbass, one of the ways for this could be the attraction of peacekeepers. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky during a press marathon in Kyiv.

“We must 100% control the border. How? We need to come to the negotiating table. Peacekeepers are one of the options”, – the president said, commenting on the issue of the uncontrolled border section in the Donbass.

To a question regarding the withdrawal of forces that had not happened so far, he commented: “As long as different people from both parties, who do not want disengagement and will accidentally shoot, come there, there will be no disengagement”.

“No disengagement – no Normandy format”, – the president summed up, meaning, probably not the Normandy format, but the next meeting in the Normandy format.

  1. Nothing more, nothing less than full control of the border. Muscovy are not involved in Donbas, (according to them) so they can have no objections, but we all know they will.
