Moscow also says it is premature to speak about a certain date
To date, there is no agreement on holding a meeting in "Normandy format" at the highest level, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told journalists in Kyiv on Wednesday.
According to Klimkin, various options as to different dates and cities have been discussed, but the main thing is that the talks should produce "real results."
"It does not depend on time. It all depends on whether we can agree on the actual outcome of such meetings. We may have no real results, because Russia is trying to distort the entire logic of Minsk. Real result for us is to agree a "roadmap", which summarizes the three key areas," - Klimkin said.
The first key area is security, the second is political steps, and the third is the release of all hostages and political prisoners, the Foreign Minister explained.
"If there is no such a "roadmap", then we do not have logics of the negotiations and the subject of the meeting," Klimkin added.
Earlier this week media reported that the meeting of the leaders of France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia will take place on Oct.19 in Berlin.
Kremlin press secretary commented that the preparation is really underway, but the exact date of the talks is not decided yet.
