The progress of the negotiations brings the possibility of a face-to-face meeting between Putin and Zelenski closer

The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenskyand the president of Russia, Vladimir Putinthey could meet “soon” in person, since the drafts of the negotiations would have advanced to the point that direct talks between the two leaders were possible.

This was stated by the head of the Ukrainian negotiating delegation for the talks with Russia, David Arakhamia, in an interview with the RADA television channel, the official television channel of the Ukrainian parliament.

“We are preparing for that, the most important moment, and it is confirmed by our thesis that the drafts have already been developed enough to conduct a direct consultation between the two leaders of the countries, that is, between the president of Ukraine and the president of the Russian Federation”, Arakhamia detailed, who believes that “the time has come” to work “quickly on the final stage”.

Arakhamia has assured that the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has called the leaders of Ukraine and Russia this Friday to let them know that, for its part, Turkey was ready to organize a meeting between the two presidents in the future.

“We are still waiting, although yes, neither the date nor the place is known. But we believe that with a high degree of probability the place will be Ankara or Istanbul in Turkey”, confessed the leader of the negotiations of the Ukrainian delegation.

The advisor to the Presidency of Ukraine Mijailo Podoliak assured on March 16 that “the only option to end the war is direct talks between the two presidents”, something that the Ukrainian delegation has been working on since then.

For now, the delegations of both countries have held several conversations in which they have advanced a draft agreement to end the war that began on February 24.
