'We don't have a lot of time to stop the war and continue Minsk [process]; I want these offers to be unified by the clear deadlines of completion of this or that point', he said.

As Zelensky's press office reported, the leader of the state met with the members of the Ukrainian delegation in the Minsk group. The officials discussed the ways to speed up the negotiation process and the necessary steps for that to happen. Among them was Kuchma who stated he would insist on the ceasefire during the harvest time in summer.

Previously, Kuchma withdrew from the Minsk talks group due to his solid age; in August 2018, he had turned 80.
