MOSCOW, July 11 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine's new leader Volodymyr Zelenskiy discussed settling the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the return of prisoners during a telephone conversation on Thursday, the Kremlin said.

The two leaders also discussed the possibility of continuing contacts on the issue in the 'Normandy' format, which involves the participation of France and Germany in the talks to end the conflict between pro-Russian separatists and Kiev's forces.
