Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Lviv on August 18 to meet with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky. UN Secretary General António Guterres will also attend the talks, Moskovsky Komsomolets writes.
Some analysts believe that Turkey’s intervention in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine could contribute to its settlement. But it is too early to hope that the parties will sit down at the negotiating table in the coming days. This is because at the moment the parties have practically no room for compromise. Moscow is not going to give up its goals, Kyiv, of course, does not intend to cede Ukrainian territories to the Russian Federation.
The fighting on the territory of Ukraine, which began on February 24 with the entry of Russian troops, is the result of a conflict between the Russian Federation and the West.
Given the current situation, the parties believe that for now, one can only hope for a relative lull and the resumption of active hostilities next spring.
