Since the beginning of the Russian special operation, the Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly advocated negotiations between Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky. The press secretary of the Russian leader said that Moscow was not against such a meeting, but for this the parties at the delegation level should prepare a meaningful document to be signed by the leaders of the two countries.
Russia and Ukraine have been negotiating a settlement since late February . After the meeting of the delegations of the two countries in Istanbul, Kyiv handed over to Moscow a number of proposals, including a non-bloc and non-nuclear status of Ukraine. Later, as Russian President Vladimir Putin reported, Kyiv began to deviate from the Istanbul agreements and the negotiations reached an impasse. At the end of April, the negotiations were suspended, this was confirmed by both sides.
