The coordination meeting involving President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy was held in the framework of preparations for the meeting in the Normandy format. The parties discussed possible scenarios for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy clearly stated his position on the inadmissibility of solving the problem of the occupied territories by military means and the necessity of achieving peace in the east of Ukraine by political and diplomatic methods. NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov expressed confidence that, with the support of international partners, Ukraine would be able to regain its temporarily occupied territories and terminate hostilities.
The parties approved five scenarios for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas. During the discussion of scenarios and studying the details, the Head of State commissioned Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak to visit the territory of the Joint Forces Operation in the near future.
The decision was made that the NSDC meeting, chaired by President Volodymyr Zelensky, would take place before the meeting in the Normandy format.
