Kiev says Moscow has “orally” accepted the Ukrainian proposals

David Arakamiya, Ukraine’s top negotiator in peace talks with Russia, said on Saturday that Moscow had “orally” accepted key Ukrainian proposals, and that Kiev was now awaiting written confirmation.

In a televised statement, David Aragamia pointed out that negotiations had made significant progress aimed at ending hostility.

“The Russian Federation has given an official response to all levels [ucranianas]Aragamiya promised that it would accept them, except for the issue of Crimea, which was annexed by Moscow in 2014.

Although there was “no official confirmation in writing”, the Russian side accepted it “orally”.

The negotiator also said that if there was a meeting between Ukrainian Presidents Volodymyr Zhelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it would be “probably” in Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who hosted the Russian and Ukrainian delegations in his country this week, “invited us and Vladimir Putin” on Friday, saying he would welcome such a meeting.

“We do not know the date or location, but we think the location could be Ankara or Istanbul,” Arakamiya said.

Since the start of the Ukrainian invasion on February 24, Zhelensky has repeatedly asked Putin to negotiate with each other.

The Ukrainian negotiator stressed that Moscow had agreed during the talks that a referendum on Ukraine’s neutrality was “the only way out of this situation.”
