The negotiations between Ukrainian and Russian leaders could be focused on the outcome of the Normandy Four summit in Paris. Andriy Yermak, the Head of Office of President of Ukraine said so in an evening show at Ukraine 24 TV channel.
"So far, neither the date nor the place of these negotiations are certain, but I'm absolutely sure they will be very substantial because there's a lot to talk about. We need to discuss the results of agreements made in December during the "Normandy format" summit. We need to talk through a lot of questions. So I believe that these negotiations definitely can become landmark and historic, but so far, I can't provide any information about the time and place and other details", Yermak said.
According to him, he received the instructions from the President to prepare the meeting with Putin, and he's working on it now.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky offered his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to meet in Donbas and negotiate. Putin, in turn, invited Zelensky to Moscow; however, Russian top statesmen specified that the talks could only concern issues of bilateral relations.
