A Russian delegation are ready to resume negotiations with Ukraine to end the war, a Kremlin spokesman has said.
It is highly unlikely that the this will happen in Belarus again after they invaded Ukraine on Tuesday and have placed over 300 tanks on the border.
Peace talks were held on Monday whilst Ukraine sustained fierce attacks and bombings but there was no breakthrough.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has said he is prepared to hold talks but has refused to go to Minsk, he said, “we will not negotiate in the city from which missiles are fired at Ukraine.”
President Zelensky has suggested peace talks can take place in Warsaw, Istanbul or Baku.
“First we can try to predict whether Ukrainian negotiators will show up or not. Let’s hope this happens.
“Our (negotiators) will be there and ready,” the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
President Zelensky set out his conditions for further talks with Russia, he said, “It’s necessary to at least stop bombing people, just stop the bombing and then sit down at the negotiating table.”
