Vladimir Zelensky announced the need for several meetings with the Russian leadership to resolve the conflict in Ukraine. According to him, the meetings are necessary to resolve issues in the east of the country =”Zelensky announced the need for more than one meeting with Moscow” />
To resolve the Ukrainian conflict, more than one meeting between the leadership of Moscow and Kyiv will be required. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with Ukrainian online media.
“I don’t think that you can meet once and agree on everything. Because there are many questions. For some, I don’t see yet that they will go for our option, or we will go for their option, & mdash; he said. In addition, Zelensky called for a meeting with the Russian leadership as soon as possible.
“They (the Russian side.— RBC) want to meet when there are already final agreements on all points. I will honestly say, with all due respect to all negotiators, to all negotiation processes, I can’t have everything decided for me, — said the President of Ukraine.
As an example of an issue that requires several meetings to resolve, Zelensky cited the situation around Donbass. “They (Russia, the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.— RBC) want to permanently change the status in this part, but we want some kind of agreements so that those people who are there, who consider themselves Ukrainians, so that they know where they live, that not on some island in the middle of the land, but that it is part of some state,»,— said Zelensky.
Vladimir Zelensky has repeatedly called for a personal meeting between him and Vladimir Putin. However, in early April, Zelensky said that it would be difficult to negotiate after the events in Bucha. Earlier, photos appeared in the media from Bucha with the civilian population killed. The Russian Ministry of Defense called the photo and video from Bucha a provocation and said that during the presence of the Russian military in the city “not a single local resident was injured”, residents moved freely around the city and used cellular communications. The Russian Foreign Ministry considered the purpose of publishing materials from Bucha to disrupt the peace talks.

The Kremlin, however, does not rule out a personal meeting between Putin and Zelensky. “Nothing has changed for us. We do not reject the possibility of a meeting for our president. But we repeat once again that such a meeting is possible only after the text of the document has been agreed upon, — explained the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.
