Russian President Putin ready for talks with Ukraine.
Putin announced a 36-hour ceasefire.
Moscow. The stalemate in the Russian-Ukrainian war seems to be coming to an end. On the one hand, Russian President Putin announced a ceasefire for about two days. On the other hand, the way has been opened for talks with Ukraine. However, Putin also set a condition that talks with Ukraine will only take place when it is agreed that Russia has occupied the districts of Ukraine, and then talks can take place between the two countries.
Let us tell you that at the end of September, Russia had merged four regions of Ukraine with Russia. However, after about 10 months of war, half of these areas came out of Russian hands. Reporting, the Kremlin said President Vladimir Putin had told Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan that he was ready for talks with Ukraine if Kyiv accepts Moscow-occupied territories as Russia.
The Kremlin said in a statement that Putin had once again made it clear that Russia was seriously considering the talks. However, it is a condition that the reality of the new territories be accepted. Reporting earlier, Turkey’s presidential office said President Erdogan called for peace talks in a phone call with Putin.
Please say that Russian troops have occupied a large part of eastern and southern Ukraine. The Kremlin claims to have annexed the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhia and Kherson, although it does not fully control them. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday ordered a 36-hour ceasefire for Moscow’s armed forces in Ukraine this weekend for the Russian Orthodox Christmas holiday. The Kremlin gave this information.
