Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday that peace talks with Ukraine aren’t easy, but added that there was hope for compromise.

“I am guided by the assessments given by our negotiators. They say that the negotiations are not easy for obvious reasons. But nevertheless, there is some hope of reaching a compromise,” Lavrov said during his interview with RBC news outlet.


Lavrov said that some formulations for agreements with Ukraine were close to being agreed, with neutral status for Kyiv under “serious” consideration.
