Russian President Vladimir Putin has not spoken to his Ukrainian counterpart, Vladimir Zelensky, in recent years. This follows from the statement of the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.
RIA Novosti asked a Kremlin spokesman whether Vladimir Putin really had no contact with Vladimir Zelensky in recent years. "True," he replied.
For the first and so far the last time, the current presidents of Russia and Ukraine met in Paris in 2019 at the Normandy format summit. It was also attended by former German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. The bilateral meeting between Mr. Putin and Mr. Zelensky tête-à-tête lasted about 15 minutes.
After the summit, the heads of Russia and Ukraine called each other in February and July 2020. After that, there were no reports of any contact between them.
