Russian President Vladimir Putin will not have bilateral meetings with heads of other countries, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Despite the fact that similar proposals came from Zelensky and others, Putin denied plans for such meetings, as Strana.ua reports.
"Putin does not plan any bilateral meetings in Jerusalem with leaders of other states (and there will be more than 40 there). The program of the visit is so eventful that there is no time for this. Requests for communication were received, including from Zelensky. "Due to the busy schedule, long-term contacts are hardly possible", reads the story.
At the same time, Russian presidential advisor Yuriy Ushakov specified that no one refused Zelensky’s request. It also became known that Putin’s trip to Israel will be accompanied only by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, as well as representatives of other ministries, but not on the level of heads of departments.
As we reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky turned to fellow citizens on the occasion of the 101st anniversary of the National Unity Day, first marked in 1918.
