Putin Zelensky Meeting
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Viktorovich Lavrov has called for direct talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky. He also mentioned that the Russian President is ready to take part in such talks.

Lavrov said, however, that some preparation is needed. Lavrov made the remarks after talks with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba in Antalya, Turkey.

A meeting between the foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine was held in Antalya, Turkey on Thursday. It was organized by Turkey. In an interview with RT after the meeting, Lavrov said, "Today we have confirmed that President Putin did not reject the offer of talks with President Zelensky. If we can make some progress and solve the problem, then Putin and Russia are always ready for a meeting. "

Sergei Lavrov said: "Our very specific proposals have been heard by the Ukrainian side. They also promised to respond very precisely. We are waiting for that."

Representatives of Russia and Ukraine have held three rounds of meetings in the Belarusian border area since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on February 24. However, no significant results have been obtained so far.
