It is early to talk about a one-on-one meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, and the focus is on the preparation for the Normandy Summit. A spokesman for President of Russia Dmitry Peskov informed RIA Novosti about it.
"It is too early to talk about it, we are now focusing on the preparation for the Normandy format," Peskov said when he was asked if a meeting of the two presidents is possible before the Normandy summit.
As we reported earlier, the First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev offered Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet one-on-one, without the participation of the U.S., European society and other sides in Kazakhstan as NUR.KZ reported.
Nazarbayev stated that the incident between Ukraine and Russia is a sad moment. He offers Putin and Zelensky to meet one-on-one to solve the situation.
The first president of Kazakhstan added that he personally works to make this meeting to take place.
It is worth noting that Putin has not displayed any reluctance to this idea.
“Certainly, Putin told that he never refuses from such meetings and from this meeting also but he believes that the meeting for the meeting will bring little value; it should be prepared well. Due to this, currently, we focus on the preparation for the processes of Normandy Format. For this, of course, all commitments taken by the sides in Minsk should be fulfilled,” Peskov said.
