President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky emphasizes that Ukraine is not ready for dialogue with the separatists "DNR/LNR", but is set to work in the Minsk format to establish peace in the Donbass, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
At a joint briefing with French President Emmanuel Macron, after their meeting in Paris on Monday, Zelensky responded to the words of his French colleague about "negotiations with the separatists".
"It seems to me that now there is a small mistake. We are not ready for dialogue with the separatists. Exactly this way, because I heard the translation. We are ready to act in the Minsk format, continue the relationship in the Minsk format, cease fire, I declared it more than once", - the head of the Ukrainian state specified and emphasized.
