Russian & Ukrainian Foreign Ministers Meet in Turkey

The foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine have eye-balled each other across a meeting room in Antalya, Turkey, the most senior officials to hold in-person talks since the war began. “Jaw, jaw” might be better than “war, war”, however there has been no let up in the war. 

Both sides have stuck to their demands in order to call a halt to the fighting. Moscow has said it wants the demilitarisation of Ukraine and the recognition of separatist territories, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has again said he’s willing to consider some compromises, ruling out however ceding any territory and is pushing for security guarantees from the U.S. and Germany, alongside EU membership, all of which could be unacceptable for Russia in terms of Ukrainian “neutrality”. There is likely some wriggle room on the set positions.
