Last week, Spokesperson of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov does not yet see prospects for a personal meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.

At the beginning of July, Peskov stated almost the same about the meeting of two leaders. Kremlin’s speaker added that the words of Zelensky on the difference of people of two countries “do not fit in the process of preparation for the meeting of the leaders in any way”.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed the readiness to meet Volodymyr Zelensky but noted that it is necessary to understand first the issues of the talk.

Later, Dmitry Peskov stated that the meeting of the presidents of Russia and Ukraine, Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky, is hampered by the failure to comply with the Minsk agreements to resolve the situation in Donbas, as well as the pressure of the head of the Ukrainian state on political opponents.
