According to the Vesti.ua source, the Russian side refuses to meet because of its futility.
According to tg-channel VESTI, the meeting of political advisers of the “Norman format”, which was planned to be held on August 28 in Paris, may not take place. The official reason for the transfer to meetings may be the refusal of the host.
“The meeting was postponed at the request of Dmitry Kozak, head of the Russian presidential administration. The Russian side refuses to conduct non-binding negotiations. The Kremlin insists that the order of work in the negotiating group is not violated and the parties have time to agree on positions, – asserts Vesti.ua, – In order to formulate differences and contradictions, the Russian side needs Yermak’s proposals, and the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine still have not provided them. In turn, according to our source, the Russian side does not have time to agree on points of negotiations with representatives of the unrecognized republics. “
Let us remind, based on the diplomatic correspondence that was made public not so long ago, the stumbling block is the political part of the Minsk agreements, which the Ukrainian side consistently deletes from the agenda of the negotiations.Tikhanovskaya complained to the European Parliament about “falsification” of elections in Belarus
