“Leaders can discuss and define a roadmap. The delegations can then work to put this roadmap into practice,” the sources, quoted by Turkey’s CNN, said. Russia had previously only discussed a possible meeting between Putin and Zelenskyy after the two negotiating teams had developed a roadmap for peace.

And the meeting between Ukrainian President Zelenskyy and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is currently taking place in Lviv, reports the Turkish television channel A Haber. The meeting will focus on the latest progress made with the July 22 agreement in Istanbul on grain corridors, but also on a possible meeting between Zelenskyy and Putin in Turkey.
