Minsk talks will depend largely on Normandy conference of July 24, - Iryna Herashchenko


The tripartite contact group on Donbas conflict settlement has planned its session for July 31 and Aug. 2. The session will largely depend on the outcomes of the phone talks between the Normandy Four presidents of Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia.

This was announced by Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's representative to humanitarian subgroup of Minsk Iryna Herashchenko on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"Tomorrow [July 24 - ed.] we're having first phone talks of the Normandy Four in a long time, the first for France's new President Macron. The key issue for Ukraine is security and prisoners' release. We really want some progress in these matters," Herashchenko wrote.
