President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky offered his Russian colleague Vladimir Putin to hold talks on Donbas in Minsk with the involvement of the representatives of the U.S., France, Great Britain, as he said in his video address.

“I would like to appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Do we need to talk? Yes, we do. Let’s discuss whose Crimea is, who is not there in Donbas. I suggest the following company for the talks: me, You, the U.S. President Donald Trump, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, and President of France Emmanuel Macron. Place? I think Oleksandr Lukashenko (President of Belarus, - ed.) will welcome us with pleasure in Minsk,” Zelensky said.

At the same time, the President stressed that Ukraine does not refuse from any diplomatic formats which might settle the situation in Donbas.

As it was reported, President of Russia Vladimir Putin thought that the dialogue with the Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky is possible as he establishes the direct contacts with the representatives of the Russian occupation authorities in Donbas. Moreover, Zelensky should stop to call them separatists.
