Normandy Four to meet Wednesday - Germany

Kremlin's spokesman earlier said such a meeting was unlikely 

A lot of uncertainty circles around the next Normandy Four meeting on Wednesday, October 19, as tensions mount in eastern Ukraine.

The latest reports suggest that the leaders of Ukraine, Germany, Russia and France have agreed to meet tomorrow in Berlin to discuss the further implementation of the Minsk agreements.

The talks have been announced by Steffen Seibert, the German government spokesman, Deutsche Welle reports.

The announcement arrived just hours after the Kremlin said such a session was unlikely to happen as there was a lot of uncertainty and very little time.

The official website of the Ukrainian President also confirms the plans of the leaders to gather for negotiations in Berlin.

Poroshenko held trilateral talks with Hollande and Merkel, in which the sides agreed to hold the meeting ‘to stimulate Russia to implement the security part of the Minsk agreements'.

The latest Normandy Format meeting took place over a year ago in Paris.
