The Ukrainian president noted he had discussed in detail with Biden a number of security issues related to Russia's occupation of eastern Ukraine and the Crimean peninsula.

"As for Donbas, I have proposed that a new format be implemented at the presidential level," he said. "This is a new proposal for the United States, and they will think on which format to choose."

The president emphasized that this is about a new format of negotiations, other than the Normandy Four.

As reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy is on a working visit to the United States.
