Third round of Russia-Ukraine talks – expectations and results

The third round of Russian-Ukrainian talks, held in Belarus, failed to yield the expected results, as both Moscow and Kiev delegates acknowledged.

Ukrainian presidential office adviser Mikhail Podolyak acknowledged that there were no results for the time being that might considerably improve the situation. Russia’s chief negotiator, presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, said that the expectations pinned on the talks failed to come true.

Both sides agreed to go ahead with negotiations and noted positive shifts on the issue of humanitarian corridors that remained inoperational on Monday.

“The Russian-Ukrainian negotiations will be continued and Moscow hopes that more tangible steps forward will be made”, - said Medinsky.
