    KIEV (Sputnik) — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Thursday that a meeting on Ukraine with participation of the United States, Germany, Italy, France and the United Kingdom would be held on the sidelines of the forthcoming NATO Summit in Warsaw.

    "Within the framework of this summit… a meeting in a unique format, in a format of 'The Great Five,' which includes the United States, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Italy, will take place, just as we already met in Wales in 2014. And enough time is reserved to discuss the issues of security and reforms in Ukraine in this format with the leaders of 'The Great Five,'" Poroshenko said.

    On July 8-9, NATO will hold a Summit in the Polish capital of Warsaw to discuss boosting the Alliance’s military presence in Eastern Europe, counterterrorism, Afghanistan and defense budgeting, among other topics.
