    The Normandy Four leaders will attempt to restart the Minsk process on the Ukrainian reconciliation during the talks later on Wesnesday, the German government spokesman said.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) – On October 19, the leaders of Russia, France, Ukraine and Germany will meet in Berlin for talks on the Ukrainian settlement.

    "It would be right to start it one more time; progress can still be achieved," Steffen Seibert told a briefing.

    He added that all participants of the meeting were united on the issue.

    The Normandy Four, which comprises Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine, was created in 2014 to secure a peaceful settlement to the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The group has held several rounds of talks on Ukrainian reconciliation, most notably in February when the quartet's leaders brokered a ceasefire agreement in Minsk, Belarus, signed by Kiev and the Donbass militia in February 2015.
