President Vladimir Putin discussed the conflict in eastern Ukraine with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s Emmanuel Macron in a phone call on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, TASS reports.

The Kremlin said the call focused in part on the change of leadership in Kiev after Volodymyr Zelenskiy was elected president last month.

Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia have held four-way talks in a bid to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine between government forces and Russian-backed separatists that has killed 13,000 people since 2014.
