Dmitry Peskov commented on the proposal Erdogan to organize a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky in Istanbul.

He recalled that Erdogan repeatedly offered his services and made great efforts to start the peace process – in particular, several rounds of negotiations were organized with his participation between Russia and Ukraine at spring 2022. “He continues to express the political will to help this process,” Peskov said. However, the reality is that the delegation of Ukraine “left the radar” and the special military operation continues to achieve its goals. Now, according to Peskov, there are no prerequisites for the resumption of negotiations.

A meeting between Putin and Zelensky may be possible “only after the delegations of Russian and Ukrainian negotiators do all their homework,” the Kremlin spokesman emphasized.

This means, Peskov added, that in at the moment the mentioned meeting with Erdogan cannot take place.
