Membership in the Normandy Format may be increased after the US presidential election. This was stated by Ukraine's former president Leonid Kravchuk on the air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”, reports Ukrinform.
“I do not think that something will be changed immediately after the election. But it is possible that the number of the Normandy format countries may be increased from 4 to 5, 6 or 7 members”, - he said.
Kravchuk reminded that it is very difficult to replace the Normandy format due to the fact that Russia is not agreeable to it. “For a long time I have been offering to substitute the Norman format for Budapest format because true liability to Ukraine for its territorial integrity and sovereignty is borne by those states”, - he noted.
At the same Kravchuk expressed the belief that it would be necessary to join Britain and Poland to the negotiations on Donbas situation.
“But Russia wants to involve only the countries with whom it has historical relationships. It does not do want Anglo-Saxons. And we cannot keep taking our cue from Russian interests”, - said former president.
He also assured that Germany and France are real allies of Ukraine, but even three opponents cannot “put the squeeze on Russia”.
