Putin wants to negotiate – Ukraine refuses

Speaking to journalists in Sochi, Vladimir Putin stressed that he is ready to start negotiations to end the conflict in Ukraine, but this was rejected by Ukraine. This reports the German news platform n-tv.de.

Tass quoted the Russian president as saying: “I have already said it: we have never rejected negotiations. So please, if the other side wants it, let them say it directly. I speak, but we hear nothing from the other side.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has repeatedly proposed a ten-point peace plan to end the conflict, but it requires Russia to withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
