Russia and Ukarine Talks
Written by wave FM on March 31, 2022
The Kremlin has played down hopes of a breakthrough following talks between Russian and Ukrainian delegates in Istanbul yesterday.
Spokesman DMITRY PESKOV said there was nothing very promising said or any breakthroughs achieved.
Russia also said it would pull back forces from Kyiv and another city, Chernihiv, but the country’s chief negotiator revealed the position on Crimea and the Donbas region has not changed.
Meanwhile, Russian President VLADIMIR PUTIN has said that shelling of the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol will only end when Ukrainian troops surrender.
