Russia is said to be prepared to send delegates to Minsk, Belarus’s capital, to begin negotiations with Ukraine.
Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesperson, stated this in response to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s request.
“Following Zelensky’s suggestion to discuss Ukraine’s neutral status,” the readout stated, “Putin can send officials from the Ministry of Defense, the Foreign Ministry, and his administration to consultations with the Ukrainian delegation.”
The suggested conversation will be held in Minsk, according to the readout.
Russian soldiers have penetrated the Obolon neighborhood in the city’s north, just a few kilometers from its center, as previously reported. The forces looked to be closing in on Kyiv, putting tremendous pressure on Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian soldiers are said to have forced Russian forces back by blowing up a municipal bridge in order to halt their advance.
