A report on Tuesday morning suggests that Russia are willing to make two key concessions with peace talks and have indicated that they could scale down their aims in the Ukraine.
Sources have told the Financial Times that calls for Ukraine to be “denazified” has been dropped as part of peace talks which are taking place in Turkey on Tuesday.
Kremlin sources told the paper that they are prepared for Kyiv to join the EU but only if they never join NATO.
Today peace negotiations have resumed “on the entire spectrum of contentious issues” which also includes Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich, who has been seen talking today with the Turkish premier in Istanbul, Turkey.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has called on Tuesday for there to be an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine, but fighting and bombing still continues today.
Erdogan said, “It is up to the sides to stop this tragedy. Achieving a ceasefire and peace as soon as possible is to the benefit of everyone.
“We think we have now entered a period where concrete results are needed from talks.
“The negotiating process, which you have been carrying out
under the orders of your leaders, has raised hopes for peace.”
