"The Kremlin does not disclose the details of the talks between the Russian and Ukrainian delegations in order not to damage the process. "Ukraine is a sovereign state and it can and should have some internal procedures," Russian President's Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a response to a question about the Kremlin's view on Zelensky's idea of a possible referendum on a compromise with Russia in Ukraine, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.

"Besides, there are articles that are at the stage of negotiations between the two delegations. I can not go into the details of these articles. We are convinced that their disclosure can only harm the negotiation process, which is slower and less meaningful than we would like."

Peskov said that the position of the Russian Federation in the negotiations with Ukraine was formed orally and in writing. "They (requirements of the Russian Federation - ed.) are well known to the Ukrainian side. I can say that. They were explained very clearly, not only orally but also in writing. All the necessary draft documents were handed over to the Ukrainians a few days ago."

A Kremlin spokesman said the drafts would not be published.
