Steinmeier Formula has become media product.

Defense Minister of Ukraine Andrii Zagorodniuk said that the "Steinmeier formula" has become a media product, Ukrinform reports.

He explained his opinion by saying that this formula had never been written down anywhere.

"This verbal formula (because it is not written down anywhere) is a media product. Steinmeier himself, and he is the president of Germany, does not know what a Steinmeier formula is. He just called it an algorithm and then it was called a formula," Zagorodniuk said.

Zagorodniuk added that this algorithm could only work if troops' withdrawal and border control were achieved.

As we reported earlier, on October 1, Ukraine announced the approval of the "Steinmeier formula’s" text in response to a letter from the OSCE Special Representative to the Tripartite Contact Group, Martin Sajdik.

The signing of the "Steinmeier formula" by the Ukrainian side is a condition for participating in the Normandy Summit. German Chancellor Angela Merkel confirmed that the meeting in "Norman format" will be held in Paris, although she did not specify a specific date.
