Kremlin: Moscow is still waiting for Kiev’s proposals on a possible Putin-Zelensky meeting
Moscow has not received proposals from Kiev to hold a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
The Kremlin is waiting for specific initiatives to be submitted at the official or operational level, he said. “Probably, at least at the operational or official level, we should receive and be informed about some particular proposals,” Peskov said.
“There has been nothing so far – neither on the agenda nor at anything,” he noted. According to Peskov, Moscow “is waiting for specific proposals,” TASS reported.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said earlier in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica that Vatican City could be “an ideal place for dialogue [with Russian President Vladimir Putin] about peace in the Donbass. “The Holy See and Pope Francis are ready to facilitate the work for a Ukrainian settlement, and possible mediation assistance could be provided within the framework of the Minsk Group, Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches, says La Repubblica.
Commenting on how the Kremlin viewed this mediation and whether there were any details about the meeting, Peskov replied that he could not share any particular data about it.
