Negotiations to bring an end to the war between Ukraine and Russia were continuing on Tuesday, according to the Ukrainian side, news agency MIA informs.
“They have already been continued,” the head of the Ukrainian delegation David Arachamiya told the Ukrayinska Pravda newspaper on Tuesday, though he did not give any further details.
There was no immediate confirmation from the Russian side. Both sides met on Monday via video link for their fourth round of negotiations. On Monday afternoon, the Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak announced that the talks had been suspended until Tuesday.
Ukraine is demanding an end to the war and a withdrawal of Russian troops from its territory.
Moscow is demanding that Kiev recognise the annexed Black Sea peninsula of Crimea as Russian territory and the eastern Ukrainian separatist areas as independent states.
