Zelensky set to coordinate Normandy Four meeting date in phone calls with Macron, Merkel on Wednesday (Part 2)
KYIV. Aug 7 (Interfax) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he might have phone calls with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday to discuss the situation in eastern Ukraine and the possibility of a soonest meeting in the Normandy format.
"My first phone call of today involved the Russian president, and the second one will be with President Macron in Turkey. [...] I'd also like to have a phone call with Mrs. Merkel today, if she has time, in order to agree on an urgent meeting, so that we stop telling each other that a meeting in the Normandy format should be held this year. How many more people must die this year? I want the meeting to be held shortly," Zelensky said at a press briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.
Zelensky said he wanted a Normandy format meeting to be held despite the previous diplomatic agreements.
"We should treat each other in a humane manner and understand that this is very important," he said.
Zelensky did not rule out that he might cut short his visit to Turkey, which is due on August 7-8.

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
