Zelensky calls on Moscow for “substantive” honest talks

The President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky calls on Moscow for “substantive” honest talks to establish peace and security in the country.

According to Zelensky, this is Russia’s “only opportunity to reduce the damage of its own mistakes.” “It’s time to meet, it’s time to talk, it’s time to restore justice and territorial integrity for Ukraine, otherwise Russia’s losses will be such that even a few generations will not be enough for you to stand up,” he said.

Zelensky’s statement follows the statement of the Chief of Staff of the President of Ukraine Mikhail Podolyak. In an interview with Bloomberg, the official representing Ki in the Russian-Ukrainian talks said that despite some progress, the negotiation process with Russia may take several weeks. Podolyak noted that the key issues in the discussions were security guarantees, a ceasefire, a withdrawal with Russian troops, and a “political decision on the disputed territories.”

“The process can prolong the number of mutually excluding positions. “We can not hand over any territory,” said the Ukrainian envoy.

The head of the Russian delegation Vladimir Medinsky stated yesterday that Ukraine’s neutral status and refusal to join the North Atlantic Alliance are topics on which Ki and Moscow have brought their positions as close as possible in the talks.

Meanwhile, hostilities continue in Ukraine on the 24th day of the war. At the moment, the Russian army is focused on shelling in the eastern and northern regions of Ukraine. Rocket attacks have been going on in many cities of the country since last night, with Mariupol and Nikola as hotspots, as well as areas adjacent to areas controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

The woman officially confirms that Ukraine has lost control over the entrance to the Sea of ​​Azov. The situation remains dire, especially in Nikolai, where, according to Human Rights Watch, Russian troops have used banned cluster munitions. In Mariupol, which, according to Moscow, is also under the control of the Russian army, fierce battles are taking place for the “Azovstal” metallurgical plant. According to the Mariupol city council, 80% of the residential buildings were damaged due to the hostilities, 30% can not be restored.

She continues to accuse the Russian side of targeting civilian infrastructure, which Moscow categorically denies. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has released a video on the Chernigov shelling, the ministry claims that mostly civilian infrastructure has been destroyed.

The Russian Defense Ministry announced today that for the first time in Ukraine it used a “Kinzhal” anti-aircraft missile system, destroying a huge underground storage of Ukrainian army missiles and aviation ammunition in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.

According to the UN, almost a quarter of the population of Ukraine had to leave their homes

As a result of the large-scale war in Ukraine that has lasted for more than three weeks, almost a quarter of the country’s population has been forced to flee their homes, according to a new UN report. The organization estimates that some 6.5 million people are internally displaced, and more than 3.3 million have fled the country.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, in its turn, has published data on the number of civilian casualties since the February 24 attacks by the Russian army. The agency confirmed the death of 816 civilians, the number of injured is 2149. Meanwhile, as it is mentioned in the document, “the real numbers, in all probability, can be much bigger”.

The parties to the fourth week of the war, both Ki and Moscow, are hiding the number of casualties in the armed forces.
