Poroshenko says US involved in Normandy format

The so-called ‘president’ of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the United States was involved in the work of the Normandy format for the conflict settlement in Donbass.

The problem of settlement of the Ukrainian crisis is being discussed at talks in various formats, in particular, in the Normandy format (Russian Federation, France, Federal Republic of Germany, Ukraine). The US does not participate in it, but this issue is raised now and then.

"I would like to close any discussions on whether it would be more effective to draw the US into the Normandy format. I emphasize: it was and will be involved all the time, including under the previous administration, because the names were changed, but there was an appropriate diplomat with an ambassador’s rank, who was fully informed about all the contents of the negotiations in the Normandy format and they were coordinated with our American partners," Poroshenko said at a press conference on Sunday.
