As previously reported, a telephone conversation between the leaders of the Normandy format countries took place on Aug. 22. The parties came up with a joint statement in which they expressed support for the planned decision of the Trilateral Contact Group on the Donbas to call a truce on Aug. 25 in connection with the start of the school year on Sep. 1.
