KIEV (Reuters) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he had spoken with French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday, and that Macron had supported Zelenskiy’s initiative for a new round of four-way talks to bring peace to the eastern Donbass region.

Ukraine wants new discussions under the so-called “Normandy Format” involving France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia. Zelenskiy earlier pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin for a resumption of the peace talks, after four Ukrainian soldiers were killed by shelling in the Donbass.
