Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine are expected to meet in Paris to discuss a path towards peace in the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine. It will be the first direct meeting between the two leaders.

French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are sponsoring the meeting.
