Ukraine: It’s too early for meeting between Putin and Zelensky — Russia

Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said Monday that it is too early to talk about a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, as there is no breakthrough yet in the peace talks.

“To be able to discuss a possible meeting between the two presidents, you must first do your homework. That is, you need to conduct and agree on the results of the negotiations,” Peskov told a daily briefing.

“So far, no significant progress has been made (in the negotiation process) … The presidents simply have no agreements to approve yet,” he said.
