Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is visiting Israel on January 23, might hold a meeting with Ukraine’s President Vladimir Zelensky and US Vice President Mike Pence in that country, but the Russian leader will be short of time for detailed talks, Kremlin Aide Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday. reports citing Russian media.

"The program [of Putin’s visit to Israel] is very tough. Therefore, if there are separate meetings, there will brief ‘standing talks’," Ushakov told reporters adding that "Certainly, the president will shake hands with the main participants, it is inevitable."

"It is rather questionable whether any lengthy talks will be held since there is no time physically," he explained.

Along with this, the Kremlin official stressed that "requests [to meet with Putin] have been filed, including from President Zelensky."

When asked by TASS to clarify whether the Kremlin had to refuse a meeting with Zelensky, Ushakov answered, "Nobody has turned anybody down. Many states come up with proposals for meetings, but given the schedule, these meetings, at least the lengthy ones, seem impossible."
