Third round of Ukraine-Russia talks yields small improvements for logistics of humanitarian corridors - Podolyak

MINSK. March 7 (Interfax) - The third round of Ukraine-Russia talks has produced small positive shifts in the matter of providing humanitarian corridors, an advisor of the head of Ukraine's presidential office, said.

"Third round of talks is over. Small positive shifts to improve the logistics of humanitarian corridors," Mykhailo Podolyak tweeted on Monday.

The corridors will be altered for a more efficient evacuation, he said.

As for the other issues, intense consultations continue, he said.

"From the standpoint of the key political trek - ceasefire, reconciliation, cessation of hostilities - intense consultations will continue. As of today, there is no result to make any considerable improvement in the situation. Still, yet again I want to stress: the consultations will continue and we will get the results," Podolyak said.

Today's talks lasted more than three hours in Belavezhskaya Pushcha, Brest region, Belarus, the same place where they were held the last time on March 3. The first round was held in Gomel region on February 28.
