‘The Russian and Ukrainian Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky, have started a dialogue, but they are far from reaching an agreement on a whole range of issues,’ Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated.
“Putin and Zelensky have started talking to each other. However, they are far from reaching an agreement on a whole range of issues, they are using different terms.
I think their one-on-one conversation lasted 10-15 minutes, so this is not that brief. Later, they were interrupted by President of France who insisted on continuing the work in the Normandy format,” Dmitry Peskov said.
A Normandy Four summit was held in Paris on December 9, for the first time after a three-year break.
Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia, Emmanuel Macron of Germany, Vladimir Zelensky of Ukraine and German Chancellor Angela Merkel gathered in the Elysee Palace to discuss ways of settling the conflict in Donbass.
