If there are no changes, then there will be no meeting, Viktor Medvedchuk, Ukrainian MP and the Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party, said in his interview with 112 Ukraine, NewsOne, ZIK and Inter TV channels in response to a question about the upcoming meeting of the Normandy Four format scheduled for April.

“When you ask about the meeting in April, my point of view is as follows: if there is no progress in implementation of provisions in the (previous Normandy meeting, - ed.) communique, there are hardly any grounds for such a meeting. But there is already an official position of the Russian Foreign Ministry, published just the other day: two months have passed, and none of the provisions of the Paris communiqué has been implemented. Moreover, there is even no sign of such a tendency. I gave an example with our law not in vain. Why do you adopt a law on changing only the validity period when there exists the Steinmeier formula, which we simply inserted into the law as a change and submitted it for consideration (of the parliament, - ed.). But this isn’t good enough. This isn’t good enough for whom? For parliamentary mono-majority - meaning The Servant of the People political party? For Mr. Zelensky? Yes, definitely," Medvedchuk said.

“The conclusion is non-alternative, unappealable. This isn’t good enough for Zelensky’s team. If so, then what kind of meeting can be discussed? If it 's not so, then how can peace be achieved? Moreover, today I’m absolutely sure: if the policy of Mr. Zelensky and his team on peaceful settlement in Donbas doesn't' change, there will be no peace in Ukraine and in Donbas. This is my firm conviction, and I can give the reasons for it, among them the circumstances that I have already cited when answering your question," Viktor Medvedchuk emphasized.

As we reported, on January 23, Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party, MP Viktor Medvedchuk in Paris held a presentation of the Normandy Format Parliamentary Dimension, where he met with members of the French Senate, National Assembly and representatives of diplomatic and business circles of France.
