This was stated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky following a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan and UN Secretary General António Guterres in Lviv, Anadolu agency reports on Twitter.
“Russia must immediately withdraw its troops from the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, stop provocations,” — Zelensky said.
The key topic of the meeting was “how the war could end,” the Turkish president said, CNN T & uuml; rk reports. Ankara is ready to become a mediator in the process of resolving the conflict in order to revive negotiations on the basis of the parameters agreed in Istanbul. “I maintain my belief that the war will eventually end at the negotiating table. In essence, Mr. Zelensky and Guterres agree [with me] on this issue, — Erdogan said. He pointed out that no one wanted a “new Chernobyl”.
Neither Erdogan nor Guterres persuaded Zelensky to make any concessions to Russia, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba assured on Facebook (Meta, the owner of the social network, recognized as extremist and banned in Russia).
Negotiations between Russia and Ukraine to resolve the conflict were actually suspended since the end of March. In Kyiv, they noted that the reason for this was the changed “emotional background”; after the events in early April in the Ukrainian city of Bucha. Reuters, AFP and other agencies reported that dead civilians were found in it. The Russian Defense Ministry called the publications a provocation.
The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly offered Russia to organize a meeting between Putin and Zelensky, and the Ukrainian president himself has repeatedly come forward with this initiative. For a long time, the Kremlin rejected this possibility, insisting that the negotiators must first do their “homework”; and draw up a road map. By August, Russia softened its demands, allowing Putin and Zelensky to discuss ways to resolve the conflict directly in a face-to-face meeting, sources told CNN Türk. According to the channel's interlocutors, the Russian president told Erdogan about this at a meeting in Sochi in early August.

At the moment, negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv are impossible, the Ukrainian authorities have said more than once. To do this, Kyiv must first achieve a strong negotiating position, in particular— during the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, pointed out the head of the Ukrainian delegation, David Arakhamia. Kuleba also noted the direct connection between the situation at the front and the course of the dialogue; he believes that negotiations with Russia are possible only after its “defeat on the battlefield.” “Otherwise it will again be the language of ultimatums,” — the minister explained. If we start negotiations now, it will mean a victory for Russia, said Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of Zelensky's office. He emphasized that the opportunity to win for Ukraine is more important than the chance for “some kind of situational pause.”
Russia sent troops to Ukraine more than five months ago— on the night of February 24th. Putin explained his actions by the desire to “restore statehood” LPR and DPR, to protect the inhabitants of Donbass from the “genocide by the Kyiv regime” and carry out demilitarization and “denazification” neighboring state.
Ukraine in response introduced martial law and general mobilization, diplomatic relations with Russia were severed.
