Russia, Ukraine to talk again on March 29-30
Russia and Ukraine will meet again for talks to make their fourth round of in-person negotiations since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.
Another round of talks between Russia and Ukraine, the fourth, will take place on March 29-30, Russian presidential aide and chief negotiator Vladimir Medinsky said Sunday.
According to Medinsky, Moscow and Kiev had talked via videoconference on Sunday, and following their negotiations, they decided to meet in person on March 29-30.
The parties to the crisis held three rounds of negotiations in Belarus, and negotiations are going on an almost daily basis via videoconference.
The first round took place in Gomel, Belarus, just four days after the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine; the second took place in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, Belarus, and the third took place in Brest, Belarus. However, most of the talks took place online.
Russia had launched a special military operation in Ukraine due to NATO's eastward expansion, the Ukrainian shelling of Donbass, and the killing of the people of the Donetsk People's Republic and Lugansk People's Republic, in addition to Moscow wanting to "denazify" and demilitarize Ukraine.
