"I hope you and President Putin can get together and solve problems," Trump said.
The head of the United States also noted that Kyiv and Moscow have recently made progress (referring to the exchange of prisoners between Ukraine and Russia).
"Mr. Lavrov approached me and said: “I want to meet you. And I want to tell you that we are looking forward to the end of the war in the Donbas" and congratulated me on the exchange (exchange of prisoners within the 35 for 35 formula - ed.)", - the president reported.
Zelensky replied that Ukraine was doing everything for peace, and suggested the return of Ukrainian lands and the exchange of prisoners.
"If you are ready, then let's end the war, give us our territories back and exchange people", - the Ukrainian leader told in a conversation with Lavrov.
Zelensky said that in the dialogue he emphasized on his desire to stop the murdering of Ukrainian soldiers and other citizens.
The President noted that the conversation was very short.
