Zelenskyy Completes Bilateral Negotiations With Putin

Zelenskyy’s spokesperson, Yuliya Mendel, wrote this on Twitter, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

“The bilateral meeting between Ukrainian President Zelenskyy and Russian President Putin in the framework of the Normandy Format in Paris was completed,” she wrote.

Mendel did not provide any other details.

In turn, Putin after meeting with Zelenskyy told Russian journalists that the meeting was “good, businesslike.”

Earlier, the Presidential Office announced that after the meeting between Zelenskyy and Putin, the Normandy Negotiations will continue in a quadripartite format.

So far, no other details have been officially reported on the progress and outcome of the Normandy Summit.

After a joint dinner, the leaders of the Normandy Format should give a press-conference to the media.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, at the summit, Zelenskyy planned to raise the question of an alternative plan to transfer to Ukraine control over an uncontrolled section of the state border with Russia in Donbas, different from that provided in the Minsk Agreements.

Zelenskyy also admitted a discussion with Putin in Paris on the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine, but without any connection with Donbas issues.

    Our correspondent reports that, according to sources in the Ukrainian delegation, Zelenskyy was not able to come to an agreement on re-establishing government control over the Ukrainian-Russian border – Putin offered to return control of the border after elections in the occupied territories, but Zelenskyy refused. Additionally, the law on the ‘special status’ of the Donbas is to be extended. But there was some progress – a provisional agreement on another prisoner exchange has been set before the end of the year.

    At least Putin admitted he controls Donbas. The rest no results, Zelinsky failed!

    • But the real failure is the Vladolf reading of Minsk. He continues to read it backwards….and continues to get away with it. He wants to begin with the “political process” before implementing the ceasefire, exchanges and border control. Even the journalists didn’t pick up on it and I assume they can read Minsk too.

      • Ceasefire is No1 on the list in the Minsk agreement. From what little we heard about this meeting, nothing much happened, and won’t happen, unless crippling pressure is put on the dwarf. Ze didn’t come away with much, but at least he didn’t capitulate, as far as we know.

  • Some nice slim legs on display in the photo at the top. Yulia Mendel?
    I suspect that is the only thing I will find that is nice about this meeting with the hapless Zel, the treacherous frogs, krauts and the Nazi shitweasel.
