The official added that the meeting did not take place because Zelensky canceled his participation in the World Forum of the Holocaust Victims where Putin was present.
"No. There was none. Zelensky, unfortunately, canceled his arrival on the forum", Peskov said.
He added that Putin came to Bethlehem to negotiate with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.
Previously, Volodymyr Zelensky was going to participate in the fifth World Forum of the Holocaust Victims; this year, it was dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the release of prisoners of Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Later, he said he decided to pass his place to the people who survived that tragedy in 1940-1945. He also visited the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and participated in the prayer for peace in Ukraine. "Peace is the most important thing for Ukraine. It is important that prayer for peace is heard in such holy places," Zelensky said.
