Ukraine is ready for any format of talks with Russia that will help end the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Ukrainian presidential press secretary Serhiy Nykyforov has told Ukrinform.

"Our position remains unchanged: Ukraine is ready for any format of negotiations that will bring good news on the settlement of the conflict in the east," he said.

At the same time, when asked whether a possible meeting between Ukrainian President Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin was discussed at Zelensky's meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Kyiv on February 3, Nykyforov said he could not add more than what both leaders said in their statements as they spent most of the time talking face-to-face.

Nykyforov recalled that Turkey had already proposed several times to mediate such a meeting between Ukraine and Russia. However, Russia has not yet given positive responses to such proposals.

According to earlier media reports, Erdogan said that Zelensky had agreed to meet with Putin in Turkey.

Erdogan made an official visit to Ukraine on February 3. He met with Zelensky in Kyiv.
