The agreements include 13 points, including a ceasefire, the withdrawal of heavy weapons, the introduction of the special status of certain regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions and constitutional reform in Ukraine.
Earlier in April, RBC wrote that on April 30, the Norman Four Foreign Ministers plan to hold talks to resolve the conflict in the Donbass. They should be held in a video conference format. Sources said Germany took the initiative.
According to them, Moscow plans to focus on discussing the implementation of the Paris communiqué adopted in December 2019. It includes provisions on the priority of the Minsk agreements as the main format of work, the exchange of prisoners, the separation of forces and the introduction of the “Steinmeier formula” in the legislation of Ukraine. The formula determines the mechanism of self-government in certain regions of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions, as well as about elections.
On April 29, the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed its participation in the negotiations in video format.
