Representatives from Russia and Ukraine will meet for another round of talks in two weeks after leaders huddled on Wednesday amid increased tensions in the region.
Kremlin envoy Dmitry Kozak told reporters in Paris that the two sides will participate in more discussions in two weeks in Berlin, according to Bloomberg.
The announcement came after advisers to the presidents of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France met for eight hours. Kozak said the discussions were “not easy,” according to Bloomberg.
Andriy Yermak, Ukraine’s presidential chief of staff, however, said there was a “small step forward” on Wednesday, the outlet reported.
