Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy 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.

Since the war began, 13,000 people have died as a direct result of the fighting between Ukrainian forces and Russian-sponsored “separatists.”

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