"The return of occupied Crimea, the cessation of hostilities in Donbas and the release of over 100 political prisoners and Ukrainian sailors held by the Kremlin will be a real serious signal to the world that Russia is ready to once again take its place on the agenda of high diplomacy," Zelensky wrote on Facebook.

The president also thanked the countries that consistently support Ukraine in upholding territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Earlier, a CNN source said U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron allegedly believe Russia should be invited to a G7 summit next year. The source said the idea was voiced by Macron and supported by Trump.

At the same time, a diplomatic source in France told Reuters that Russia's access to the Group of Seven depended on progress in Ukraine peace talks.
