Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky

Nearly one month since Russian troops first invaded Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has ‘agreed’ to peace talks with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, reports claim.

The two leaders are set to meet in person to discuss the ongoing conflict, after their diplomatic teams have failed to reach a resolution since the conflict started on February 24.

BBC correspondent Lysa Doucet said the Russian President is now believed to have caved to his top diplomats and accepted he will have to attend negotiations himself “at some point.”

Speaking to BBC’s Broadcasting House, Ms Doucet said: “The diplomats are talking, the negotiators are talking.

“And we understand they are making progress. And we understand President Putin has finally agreed that he will meet, at some point, President Zelensky who has been asking for a meeting since January.

“He hasn’t said it in public, he says quite the opposite in public.

“But we understand there’s many, many eager mediators – everyone wants the prize of saying they brought this war to an end.

“The Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet is very busy, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is very busy.
