Moscow has never abandoned dialogue with Washington concerning the situation in Ukraine, according Russia's envoy to the EU. reports that, Russia is not avoiding dialogue with the United States on the situation in Ukraine, Russian envoy to EU Vladimir Chizhov said Thursday.

"As for Russia, we have never abandoned and we are not abandoning the dialogue with the Americans on the situation in Ukraine…we'll see what is going to happen in the future," Chizhov said in an interview with Rossiya-24 television.

France and Germany have reservations about letting the United State join the Normandy Four group on Ukrainian reconciliation, Chizhov said.

"The calls to expand the Normandy Four format by allowing some European countries [the UK and Poland], as well as the US, to join is not a new trend," he said.

"Berlin and Paris have always had reservations in that respect…well, we will see what's going to happen," Chizhov added.
