The British edition of The Times, citing sources, writes that the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich is a mediator in the negotiations between Kyiv and the Kremlin. He handed Vladimir Putin a note written by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy himself.

The newspaper writes that Putin received the note around March 23. In the note, Zelenskyy outlined possible compromises that the Ukrainian government is ready to make to end the war. Putin allegedly became angry and replied to Abramovich: "Tell him that I will destroy them."

В Стамбуле Абрамович якобы встретился с народным депутатом Рустемом Умеровым, которого уполномочил Киев участвовать в переговорах. Вместе с представителем турецкого президента Ибрагимом Калином они проводили ряд встреч.

In Istanbul, Abramovich allegedly met with MP Rustem Umerov, whom Kyiv authorized to participate in the negotiations. They held a series of meetings with Turkish Presidential representative Ibrahim Kalin.

The newspaper writes that despite Putinʼs anger, the parties are slowly approaching a certain agreement.
