President Vladimir Putin is ready for possible meeting with President Zelensky according to Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov.
Persecondnews.com reports that Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov held talks in Turkey on Wednesday afternoon.
As the ministers were speaking, news from the front lines indicated an aid convoy for Mariupol was forced to turn around due to Russian shelling.
Mr Kuleba said his Russian counterpart did not agree to a corridor from Mariupol and there was no progress on ceasefire talks. Mr Lavrov said that the military operation was going to plan, he added that Moscow is still waiting for a reply to its list of four demands to end the invasion – terms Mr Kuleba said were tantamount to surrender.
The talks come after international leaders and Ukraine accused Russia of a “barbaric” attack on a children’s hospital.
