It is noted that the key issue of the talks is an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of troops from Ukraine.
We will remind, today the first negotiations with the aggressor country since the beginning of full-scale war against Ukraine can take place. Venue – near the river Pripyat on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border.
Earlier, the head of the Servant of the People faction, David Arahamiya, who is part of the Ukrainian delegation to the talks with Russia in Belarus, said that they were being held today to “hear the proposals.”
Moscow will demand, reject concessions. Kyiv will demand, reject concessions. Session is over, killing continues…
This certainly feels like a trap. The Moskali are losing and have nothing to negotiate with besides lies. There should be a precondition of a cease fire at least before meeting. We can’t lose those people listed above and have them end up as hostages while Putin is losing. I sure wish them luck and pray they will return home today.
I’m disgusted by how many western leaders are blowing themselves up now. It’s the ukrainians who crushed the invaders and nobody else. Those who sent arms before the invasion can be exempt, but the rest of the cowards should stay very quiet IMO.
Agreed! Today everyone is Ukrainian :))
Apart from the shit countries that support putinazism, the whole world is watching.
There has to be a verifiable ceasefire. Then negotiations can go ahead. The invaders must leave with Ukraine’s sovereignty unchanged.
But Ukraine can afford to make some painful concessions in order to get peace.
Actually, they can’t afford to make painful concessions. Ukraine was not losing and if they make painful concessions they embolden the rodent to come back for a rematch. The one thing that must be demanded is the removal of troops and mercenaries completely from the Donbas. That’s minimum. They can not grant recognition of Crimea as Russia either.
Putin is the one that needs concessions because he is losing.
Russian troops are advancing. They are 15 miles away from downtown Kyiv.
