However Ukraine forces said they had pushed back advancing Russian troops and recaptured their territory which has been backed up by the British Ministry of Defence (MoD).

It is unknown if this is just a tactic for Russian forces to re-group which is a tactic Moscow has repeatedly done throughout this conflict.

The Kremlin have also claimed to have liberated the Donbas in eastern Ukraine which could see the conflict remain in place until Russia has taken Mariupol which would be needed as a land crossing from the Donbas region to Crimea.

On Tuesday peace negotiations were held in Istanbul, Turkey and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has expressed his hope on Tuesday following the peace talks which took place at Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul.

Erdogan is hopeful that talks between Vladimir Putan and Volodymyr Zelensky could take place in person and that Turkey are ready to host negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.

Top Russian negotiator Vladimir Medinsky said today that he will go through the proposals discussed on Tuesday and then will report back to the Russian President.

Ukraine said this week that their conditions for a ceasefire would include commitments to demilitarisation and neutrality however they will not concede any Ukrainian land to Putin.
