Turkiye, Ukraine, Russia foreign ministers' meeting kicks off
Meeting being held in Turkiye's resort city of Antalya
The high-level tripartite meeting began at 1100 AM local (0800 GMT) amid the Antalya Diplomacy Forum in Turkiye.
Prior to the meeting on Wednesday, Ukrainian Minister Dmytro Kuleba on social media voiced hope for "talks in good faith, not from a propaganda perspective, but really with the task of finding a solution on how to end the war waged by Russia."
Separately, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday also expressed hope for the meeting to open doors for a permanent cease-fire.
Positions of both sides
Moscow has various conditions to end the war in Ukraine.
Kyiv wants the war on its territory to end and Russian troops to completely withdraw from Ukrainian soil, including Crimea and Donbas.
The first round of negotiations took place on Feb. 28 in Gomel, Belarus near the Ukrainian border and lasted five hours.
The second round took place on March 3 and the third on March 7, both in the Brest region of Belarus.
Russia announced early Monday that it would declare a "temporary" cease-fire in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and the cities of Mariupol, Kharkiv, and Sumy from 10 a.m. local time (0700GMT) to ensure the evacuation of civilians.
At least 516 civilians have been killed and 908 others injured in Ukraine so far, according to UN figures, with the real toll feared to be higher.
More than 2.1 million people have fled Ukraine to neighboring countries, according to the UN Refugee Agency.
