Conversaciones de paz Ucrania-Rusia buscan paz en el oriente ucraniano
December 9, 2019 - El presidente de Ucrania Volodymyr Zelenskiy y su contraparte ruso Vladimir Putin se reúnen en París junto con los líderes de Francia y Alemania en un esfuerzo renovado para poner fin al conflicto en el este de Ucrania
More than five years of fighting in eastern Ukraine between government troops and Moscow-backed separatists has killed more than 13,000 people, and a cease-fire has remained elusive.
A major breakthrough is unlikely, but whatever happens, the summit is the biggest test yet for Zelenskiy, who won the presidency this year in a landslide – partly on promises to end the war.
Many Ukrainians are concerned over a possible compromise with Russia, which they see as an aggressor seeking to restore the Kremlin’s influence on the former Soviet republic and ruin Ukraine’s aspiration to closer European ties, Reuters said.
