On August 7, a telephone conversation took place between Putin and Zelensky.

During the conversation, Putin emphasized that in order to de-escalate the conflict in the Donbass, further shelling by Ukrainian forces of settlements in the region should be excluded, which ultimately leads to the death of civilians.

Putin later announced cautious optimism from negotiations with Zelensky.
