Normandy format (French: Format Normandie), also known as the Normandy contact group, or the Normandy Four, is a diplomatic group of senior representatives of the four countries (Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France) to resolve the war in Eastern Ukraine.
The group was created on June 6, 2014, when leaders from France, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine met on the margins of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day allied landings in Normandy. Since negotiations and talks have been stalled since 2016, the Normandy Format is considered on hiatus.
