Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov says Normandy talks are far from being promising

Russian President's spokesman Dmitry Peskov sees little progress in Minsk agreements implementation, according to RIA Novosti.

"Concerning Normandy process, it is still the main basis for settling the crisis in Ukraine, that is why the work of Normandy four is highly important, especially since the situation is far from being promising and productive. So far we state a ‘desperate situation' in implementing Minsk agreements which were signed by the Normandy Four", Peskov claimed.

As earlier reported, the next meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs in the "Normandy format" is scheduled for May 11, in Berlin.

German Minister of Foreign Affairs Frank Walter-Steinmeier initiated the negotiations willing to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine and saying "it is crucial to give one more try to overcome tensions between Kyiv and Moscow".
