The Ukrainian capital, Kiev, has promised to reduce its forces in several areas. Diplomats from Russia and Ukraine have imposed a number of conditions on the talks in Istanbul. In this context, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky opened his mouth. “The people of Ukraine are not so stupid,” he said. We have learned a lot in the last 34 days since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ukraine has also learned during the last eight years of war in Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk) that only certain results can be trusted, not negotiated. ”
However, Zelensky sees Tuesday’s talks as positive. “We can take the signal from the meeting as positive,” he said. But that is not the only sign that Russia is launching a missile. ”
The United States has warned Ukraine that Russia will reduce its military presence in Kiev and Chernihiv. They say Vladimir Putin’s country has withdrawn very few troops from the vicinity of Kiev. But that does not mean that Ukraine’s risk is over. Russia’s foreign ministry has said in a statement that Russia will probably withdraw most of its troops from Donetsk and Luhansk.
