Further talks between Russia and Ukraine could take place next week, according to Mykhailo Podoliak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“As soon as mutual counter legal formats are worked out, a meeting will be scheduled – the fourth round of negotiations. It could be tomorrow, the day after tomorrow,” Podoliak told Belta, the Belarus state news agency, on Sunday.
“There are various proposals on the negotiating table now, there are many of them, there are a dozen proposals, including on a political settlement and, most importantly, on a military settlement. I mean a ceasefire, a formula for a ceasefire and the withdrawal of troops, “he said.
“It’s probably not necessary to go further and just have conversations. We discussed all the issues, now we are trying to pack these issues into some legal formats,” Podoliak said.
On Saturday, Podoliak posted an update on talks on Twitter.
“Negotiations with the RF [Russian Federation] delegation are now ongoing in a continuous video format. Special working subgroups have been created, “he wrote.” Ukraine’s positions are determined by the previous directives. “
