At discussions in Turkey on Tuesday, Ukraine's senior negotiator said enough progress had been made to allow a meeting between the two countries' presidents. "The results of today's meeting are sufficient for a meeting at the leaders' level," Ukrainian negotiator David Arakhamia said, raising the prospect of a meeting between Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin, which Russia had dismissed as "counterproductive" only a few days ago. Over a month after Russia invaded its neighbour, a Russian negotiator welcomed "substantial" progress with Ukrainian delegates at peace negotiations in Istanbul, Turkey. The talks are centred on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine's war-torn regions, as well as Russia's demand that Ukraine become a neutral country.
