"This issue has long been closed for the reasons everyone is aware of, just as of what preceded this. Any other discussions in other formats – in any formats – are impossible," he stressed.

Peskov added that the main messages on Donbas settlement voiced by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during a recent press marathon were reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"We carefully examined President Zelensky's main statements, especially those relating to the process of settlement in the south-east of Ukraine, the Minsk agreements and so on, which he made during the press marathon," Peskov said.

According to him, with all due respect, the Kremlin could not devote so many hours to viewing the entire process of media communication. "I repeat once again - his main statements have been read and reported to President Putin," he said.
