Kyiv says that Moscow agreed "verbally" to its proposals, with the exception of one file, What is it? Ukraine's chief negotiator confirmed that talks with the Russian delegation on ending the war are on the way to making progress. He stated that Russia had agreed "verbally" to all Ukrainian positions, with the exception of the Crimea file.  Ukraine's chief negotiator in peace negotiations with Russia revealed Saturday that Moscow had "verbally" agreed to key Ukrainian proposals, raising hopes for progress in talks to end the war.  David Arachamia told Ukrainian television channels that any possible meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin would "probably" take place in Turkey.  "The Russian Federation gave an official response to all positions. It agreed with the Ukrainian position, with the exception of the issue of Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014," he added.  He pointed out that there is no "official written confirmation", but the Russian side expressed it "orally."  These comments came in conjunction with Ukraine's announcement that it had regained control of the entire Kyiv region.  Arachmia said that Moscow agreed in the talks that holding a referendum on Ukraine's neutral status "would be the only way out of this situation."  Asked what would happen if Ukrainians voted against the country's neutrality, Arakhmia replied, "Either we return to a state of war, perhaps, or to new negotiations."  The Kremlin stresses Ukraine's neutrality and non-joining of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).  Arakhamia said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan "contacted us and Vladimir Putin" on Friday, expressing his readiness to host the meeting between Zelensky and Putin.  But he explained that "neither the date nor the place is known, but we believe that the place will most likely be Ankara or Istanbul."  Turkey, which enjoys good relations with both Russia and Ukraine, has sought to mediate this dispute.
