Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a telephone conversation with Russian leader Vladimir Putin . This is their second conversation in two weeks.

According to the press service of the Turkish President, during the conversation, the current war in Ukraine and related economic issues were discussed – the operation of the “grain corridor”, the export of Russian ammonia and the supply of Russian grain to Africa through Turkey.

Erdogan recalled that Ankara is ready to become an intermediary between Ukraine and Russia if they start the negotiation process.

According to the Kremlin press service , Putin complained to the Turkish leader about Ukraine, which did not join the “Christmas ceasefire” announced by Russia.

“Vladimir Putin drew attention to the destructive line of the Kyiv regime, which relied on the intensification of hostilities with the support of Western sponsors, increasing the volume of transferred weapons and military equipment. An example of Kyiv’s hypocritical policy was the rejection of the proposal to cease fire for the Orthodox Christmas period,” the report says.

Russian “ceasefire” for Christmas

On January 5, the Turkish president called the Kremlin and suggested that Putin show a gesture of goodwill and declare unilaterally a ceasefire on Orthodox Christmas. On the same day, Putin ordered his troops to cease fire.

Ukraine did not follow the example of Russia. According to NSDC Secretary Danilov , the ceasefire announced by Russia is “a lie and hypocrisy.” And President Zelensky recommended that Russian troops “pick up the toilets and return to their rooms” in order to achieve a real ceasefire.

Quite expectedly, the Russian occupiers did not adhere to the ceasefire declared by their own president.

  1. The Small Man from the KGB keeps getting smaller and smaller on the international stage. Now he’s reduced to complaining on the phone and using propaganda to distract people from his campaign of genocide.

    This guy is living in an alternate universe and I know he a fuckin idiot but it still pisses me off when I see this moron saying such stupidity, as such stupidity can’t be cured except for a nice javelin missile being rammed up his ass. That may shut him up!!’

      • I’m sure of it. What has putler done to deserve respect? Even in the face of someone like Erdogan? Nothing at all. He grovels to Turkey, to Iran and to North Korea. That’s about as low as you can get. He’s a slithering worm and nothing else. I’d love to hear some of the jokes they’re telling each other in Ankara about putler.

What is your opinion?
