The second question, which, according to Zelensky, he raised during his conversation with Putin, is a reduction in the terms of construction of bridge in Stanytsia Luhanska.

"There are a few more questions that I raised. This is the return of our prisoners ... It was a long conversation. I say that our people are being killed, and they tell me that there are some details where our people shoot at civilians. You know, everyone says they want peace, but apart from words, we should move very quickly", - the president noted.
