The fourth round of talks between Ukraine and Russia is about to get underway, according to Ukraine's lead negotiator, APA reports citing CNN.
The session will be held virtually, not in person. The Ukrainian negotiating team is in Kyiv.
The Ukrainian negotiator, Mykhailo Podoliak, posted a short video on Twitter saying:
Negotiations. 4th round. On peace, ceasefire, immediate withdrawal of troops & security guarantees. Hard discussion."
Podoliak added: "Although Russia realizes the nonsense of its aggressive actions, it still has a delusion that 19 days of violence against Ukraine peaceful cities is the right strategy."
