The Kremlin announced on Friday that United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will visit Russia next week, where he will meet with President Vladimir Putin, their first meeting since the start of Russian military operations in Ukraine.

“On Tuesday, April 26, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will arrive in Moscow for talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who will be welcomed by Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies.

On Tuesday, Guterres sent two separate letters to President Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zhelensky, requesting that he be received in Moscow and Kiev.

Following the Russian military operation in Ukraine on February 24, the United Nations was sidelined in the conflict due to divisions between the five permanent members – 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.

Moreover, Putin has not responded to Guterres’ phone calls or contacted him since the UN Secretary-General said the invasion was a violation of the UN Charter.

On Tuesday, Guterres condemned the Russian offensive in eastern Ukraine and called on both sides to stop fighting during the Orthodox Easter event and declare a four-day humanitarian ceasefire from Thursday to Sunday.
