Minsk Deal Fulfillment More Important Than Normandy Format Change

It is important that the Minsk agreements are fulfilled in settling the situation in Ukraine, but the reduction or expansion of the Normandy format is insignificant, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

"What's important now is not the expansion or reduction of any type of formats, what's important now is the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements, which are clearly stated," Peskov told journalists in response to whether the Normandy format might be expanded.

The Normandy Quartet of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France has been trying to find a peaceful solution to the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine that began in April 2014 after Kiev authorities launched an offensive against independence supporters in Donbass.
