The Kremlin names conditions for Putin's meeting with Ukrainian President Zelensky

The Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin's meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky in the Normandy format would be possible only when the specific conditions will be met, reports TASS news agency.

Kremlin's representative noted that after the change of power in Ukraine, the discussion of the fact that the Minsk agreements have not been implemented resumed.

Peskov stressed that it is necessary to discuss this, including at the highest level in the Normandy format. However, for the meeting of the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France, and Germany to take place, the specific conditions must be met.

One of these conditions, according to Putin's Press Secretary, is Ukraine's readiness to implement the Minsk agreements, as well as to communicate directly with the representatives of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.

"All this requires further clarification," Peskov said, adding that so far there is "no specific schedule" concerning the summit in the Normandy format.
