Russia-Ukraine talks. Vladimir Putin will meet Volodymyr Zelensky?
The Ukrainian side said that it intends to negotiate, but this does not mean surrendering or accepting any ultimatum, the Reuters agency reported after Mykhailo Podolak, advisor to the president of Ukraine, who said on social media on Sunday that “Russia is starting to talk constructively”.
One of the Russian negotiators, Leonid Slutsky, allegedly said that the parties were making progress in the talks.
Earlier, an advisor to President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about the work on a package of agreements that would take into account the position of the Ukrainian side in the context of negotiations with Russia, and stressed that “the presidents of (both countries) can meet only when all this is worked out and pre-agreed”.
– I think it will happen and that the road to it is not that long – he assessed. However, he made a reservation that “time is needed” and assured that the Ukrainian side “will try to do this as soon as possible”.
According to Podolak, the Russian side would also like to reach the point of “direct and bilateral talks between the presidents and the signing of an effective agreement”.
Podolak noted that Ukraine would not give up its goals, including “ending the war and the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops”. He noted that during the talks the Russian side still repeatedly puts forward an ultimatum, but also “listened to Ukraine’s proposal”.
