The United Nations announced on Friday that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky in Kiev next week, following his stay in Moscow, to consult with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the Ukraine war.

After a visit to Moscow on Tuesday, Guterres will meet with Gelensky and his foreign minister next Thursday, according to a United Nations report.

At the first meeting after the start of Russian military operations in Ukraine, the Kremlin confirmed on Friday that Guterres would travel to Russia next week, where he will meet with Putin.

On Tuesday, Guterres sent two separate letters to Putin and Zhelensky asking them to receive him in Moscow and Kiev.

With two letters, Guterres sought to provoke a dialogue to end the war. “In this time of great danger and consequences, he wants to discuss (Kudres) urgent measures to achieve peace in Ukraine,” UN spokesman Stephen Dujarric said this week.

Since Russia’s military operation in Ukraine began on February 24, the United Nations has been sidelined in the conflict due to divisions between the five permanent members of the Security Council, Moscow, Washington, Paris, London and Beijing.

There has been no detailed contact between Guterres and Zhelensky since the war began, and they spoke once on the phone on March 26th.

Putin did not answer Guterres’ phone calls or contact him, as the UN secretary general said the start of Russian military action in Ukraine was in violation of the UN Charter.
