Russia and Ukraine have had at least four talks since Moscow’s military campaign began.
Sputnik reported on March 16, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that at the talks, Ukraine’s neutrality status along with Russia’s requirements for security guarantees are being seriously discussed. The negotiations are tough, but there is some hope of compromise.
According to Tass, Vladimir Medinsky, assistant to the President of Russia who led the negotiating team said: “The main task of the negotiators is to search through a multitude of complex issues to select those that can be reached agreement, based on that, put these points of agreement on the agenda and gradually step by step towards the ultimate goal that is right for the people – the conclusion of peace”.
Medinsky affirmed that Russia wants to have peace as soon as possible.
On February 24, Russia began its military operation in Ukraine, emphasizing that “de-militarization and denuclearization” were among the main goals of the special operation. Moscow insists the armed forces only target its military infrastructure.
The United States and its allies then imposed comprehensive sanctions on Russian individuals and entities. Russia also announced a plan to retaliate.
