In particular, the President of the Russian Federation stated he was ready to discuss with Zelensky the ways of settling down the conflict in Donbas without abiding by the Minsk agreements. He pointed out he was interested in the position of the newly elected Ukrainian president concerning the Donbas crisis.

Earlier, Volodymyr Zelensky's team advises the president-elect not to meet Russian leader Putin in person. 

The team's defense and security expert said he did not believe Putin, who would 'guarantee things' during a personal meeting. He assumed that one could only believe the Russian leader if 'powerful states', namely Great Britain and the U.S. are involved in the negotiation process.
