KIEV (Reuters) – Ukraine is preparing a roadmap with clear deadlines in order to implement a peace deal for eastern Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told reporters on Thursday, speaking alongside the visiting president of Finland.

Zelenskiy hoped that the new roadmap would be discussed at a meeting in the so-called “Normandy” format between the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France in September.

Ukraine has been fighting Russian-backed forces in the eastern Donbass region for five years in a conflict that has killed more than 13,000 people, despite a notional ceasefire that was agreed in 2015 in the Belarus capital Minsk.
