It’s Time For Russia To Get Tough With The West

“Progress on Minsk Agreements needed before summit in Normandy format — Lavrov”

No more shilly-shallying about.  There is nothing to talk about over Ukraine until earlier agreed commitments are progressed. 

So, Macron’s mooted ‘Normandy Format’ talks to take place in September are a little premature.  There needs to be movement by the Ukraine government to fulfil its commitments before any further talks can be entered into.

I doubt that will ever happen.  It didn’t over four years under Poroshenko, and Zelensky shows no sign of delivering either. The Normandy Format will have to wait.

Maybe M. Macron can use some of his excess enthusiasm to persuade Kiev towards some sort of positive action.
