Ukraine and Russia are set to hold negotiations at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border.
A statement on the Telegram messaging app said the two sides would meet at an unspecified location on the Belarusian border and did not give a precise time for the meeting.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he needed to use every opportunity to secure peace.
“I do not really believe in the outcome of this meeting, but let them try so that later not a single citizen of Ukraine has any doubt that I, as President, tried to stop the war, when there was even a small, but still a chance.”
