    Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said that there is the lack of any progress in the discussion and implementation of the ‘road map' on Donbass peace settlement.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — There is lack of progress in Normandy Four discussion of the road map on Donbass peace settlement, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said on Friday.

    "We acknowledge the lack of any progress in the discussion and implementation of the ‘road map," Poroshenko during the press-conference after talks with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda.

    On Tuesday, Normandy Four ministers met in the Belarusian capital to exchange opinions on the implementation of 2015 Minsk agreements, including a number of measures for stabilizing the situation in Ukraine.

    On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said there were no conditions for restoring trust between parties of the conflict now.

    In April 2014, Kiev authorities launched a military operation against militia in Donbas. In February 2015, the two sides reached a ceasefire deal after talks brokered by the leaders of Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine — the Normandy format — in the Belarusian capital of Minsk.

    The Minsk agreements call for Kiev to afford local autonomy in eastern Ukraine, including special status to the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics. The deal also stipulates a full ceasefire, withdrawing weapons from the line of contact, and an all-for-all prisoner exchange.
