At the first Normandy Four meeting in three years, and the first meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin for President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine and Russia managed to agree on a few measures: in particular, to conduct an "all for all" prisoner exchange and implement a permanent ceasefire by the end of the year. However, the key issues remain unresolved. And now Ukraine is planning to propose amendments to the Minsk Agreements in advance of the next Normandy format summit, scheduled for March 2020. We'll discuss it with the Servant of the People party MP Sviatoslav Yurash, member of the expert board at parliamentary Foreign Policy Committee Mykola Kapitonenko, and Maria Zolkina, a political analyst at Democratic Initiatives Foundation
Another hot topic of this week was the new details in the case of a murder of journalist Pavel Sheremet. The pre-trial investigation believes that the murder was organized and carried out by several Ukrainian volunteers and veterans of the war with Russia. Former colleagues of Sheremet want to see evidence to prove this line of inquiry. Our guests for this topic would be media expert and former deputy minister of information policy Tetiana Popova, and Elena Loginova, a Slidstvo.Info reporter who worked on the investigation into the murder of Sheremet.
