As Reuters reports:
"Officials from Russia and Ukraine ended peace talks on Monday (February, 28th, 2022) and will return to their respective capitals for further consultations before a second round of negotiations."
Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and Russian President, Vladimir Putin were not present at this first round of peace talks after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Direct conversation between both Presidents could potentially lead to an increase in the likelihood of a ceasefire between the two states.
Will Putin and Zelenskyy meet to discuss the peaceful resolution of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict before 2023?
This question will resolve positively if, at any time between March 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelenskyy have a direct conversation with the intention to discuss a peaceful resolution of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict (the conversation can take place in person, by phone, by video conference or similar), according to statements by both Ukranian and Russian governments, or according to at least three credible media sources.
If either of these men is no longer the president of his respective country, this question will resolve ambiguously.
If they meet after a peace arrangement has been successuflly reached, or they meet during a ceasefire that is not directly for the purpose of this meeting, this will not count toward resolution.
