KYIV (Reuters) – Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Wednesday that Kyiv was still waiting for an answer from Moscow on whether his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov was willing to meet for talks on the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The German government said this week that Germany, Russia, France and Ukraine had agreed that their foreign ministers should meet, without giving a date or a place for such a meeting.
“We are waiting for a signal from Moscow. We didn’t receive any signals,” Kuleba told a briefing.
