Russian-Ukrainian consultations on a peace agreement, including security guarantees for Ukraine and its neutral status, began in late February. From that time until the end of March, several face-to-face rounds took place. At the talks of delegations in Istanbul, the Ukrainian side presented its proposals for a settlement in writing. The document, in particular, said that Ukraine was ready to be a neutral and non-nuclear state, and security guarantees for it did not apply to Crimea and Sevastopol. However, in early April, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that Kyiv had departed from the proposals made in Turkey and sent a new document. After that, the Russian authorities said that negotiations with Ukraine via video link were continuing, but were proceeding slowly. At the end of April, Russia handed over its draft document to the Ukrainian side, the Kremlin reported.
