LVIV, Ukraine (Reuters) – Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Wednesday he had limited expectations of planned talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Kuleba confirmed he would attend Thursday’s talks in Turkey and urged Lavrov to approach them “in good faith, not from a propagandistic perspective.”

“But I will say frankly that my expectations of the talks are low,” Kuleba said in a video statement. “We are interested in a ceasefire, liberating our territories and the third point is to resolve all humanitarian issues.”
