Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, agreed on several measures aimed at preserving efforts to curb violence in eastern Ukraine and plan to meet again in four months to continue discussions.

The two met with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the first meeting in the so-called Normandy format since 2016.

“Our talks today allowed us to advance on all points, on disengagement, on prisoner swaps, on a ceasefire and on a political agenda for the coming months,” Macron told reporters after the meeting.
