Officials from Ukraine and Russia are set to resume talks via video conference on Friday, according to Ukrainian negotiator David Arakhamiya. There was no immediate confirmation from Moscow.

The discussions would follow in-person talks this week in Turkey which did not produce a short-term cease-fire or major progress toward a broader peace deal. Arakhamiya said on his Telegram channel that the hope was to have enough agreed on paper in another week to be able to move toward a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
