Negotiations on Donbas can only take place in a neutral country, not in Russia. The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on Donbas Leonid Kravchuk said this on the air of Channel 4.
"The president of Ukraine will never go to Moscow to negotiate on war in Donbas. If Putin comes up with the idea of talks on a global scale of relations between Ukraine and Russia, then it can only be a neutral country," Kravchuk said.
According to him, it could be Switzerland or Finland, but not Russia.
As we reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky offered his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to meet in any location of Donbas where there's war going on.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin replied to President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky's offer about the meeting in Donbas. The politician said he was ready to meet in the Russian capital.
According to Putin’s Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov, Putin and Zelensky might discuss only bilateral relations.
Kremlin stated that there is nothing to discuss concerning Crimea.
“The president (Putin, - 112.international) stated that it is possible to discuss exactly the bilateral relation, Crimean issue does not exist; there is nothing to discuss,” Peskov said.
