Moscow and Kyiv continue consultations at the level of working subgroups, Podolyak said. They prepare the positions of the parties in legal terms, he explained
The time of the meeting between the presidents of Russia and Ukraine, as well as its context, has not yet been determined, Interfax-Ukraine told the agency “Interfax-Ukraine”. Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak.
“On the one hand, we are seeing a certain intensification of clashes in the east of the country <…>. On the other hand, consultations continue at the level of working subgroups, which prepare the positions of the parties in legal terms. As soon as the specifics appear, we will make a special message about this, & mdash; says in his comment.
Thus, Podolyak commented on the words of the head of the Turkish Ministry of Defense Hulusi Akar. He admitted that a meeting between the presidents of Russia and Ukraine, Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky, could take place “in the coming days.” The Russian authorities, in turn, have repeatedly stressed that such a meeting would be possible only after the preparation of a peace treaty.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly proposed holding talks between Putin and Zelensky in Turkey. On his initiative, the Russian and Ukrainian delegations met in person in Istanbul at the end of March. As a result of this meeting, Kyiv handed over proposals for a peace agreement to Moscow.
Russia sent a counter draft treaty on April 15, but has not yet received a response to it, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on April 22. The negotiations of the delegations, according to him, are moving “slowly, slowly”; and demonstrate the insolvency and inability to negotiate Kyiv. “Statements by Ukrainian representatives, including the president and his advisers, suggest that they do not need these negotiations at all and that they have resigned themselves to their fate,” — the minister noted.
In turn, Putin said the day before that the position of the Ukrainian authorities on the terms of the settlement had changed dramatically after the talks in Istanbul. According to him, Ukraine wants to discuss Crimea and Donbass at the summit of the leaders of the two countries, while Russia insists on resolving this issue at the stage of drafting a settlement agreement.
