Zelensky, Erdogan discuss Russia's actions

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have discussed Russia's latest decisions on Ukraine.

The Ukrainian leader said this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

"Had a phone conversation with Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Expressed gratitude for supporting Ukraine's position on the latest provocative decisions of Russia. Also thanked for the support of the initiative to hold a summit of permanent members of the UN Security Council with the participation of Ukraine, Turkey and Germany," Zelensky tweeted.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 21 signed decrees recognizing the so-called "LPR" and "DPR." The agreements concluded between the quasi-republics and Russia envisage the provision of military assistance to them.

Ukraine's international partners have condemned such a decision. In particular, U.S. President Joe Biden signed a decree blocking the property of certain individuals and banning certain agreements. In addition, Germany decided to halt the certification of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
