Negotiations in Istanbul

Talks between Russian and Ukrainian delegations took place in the Turkish capital. For the first time since the beginning of the war, the parties did not say “negotiations are difficult”, but described some specific points of negotiations.

Occupant casualties

Ukraine is ready to become neutral only under the condition of security guarantees. These guarantees should not just act as NATO Article 5, but become a tough response mechanism. Participating countries – a dozen: Britain, USA, China, France, Turkey, Germany, Canada, Italy, Poland, Israel. And, of course, Russia. In case of danger, Ukraine must be provided not only with weapons, but also with the sky and live military support – soldiers. At the same time, Ukraine does not join NATO, but may become a member of the EU.

The issue of Donbass and Crimea remains open. There should be no fighting in these areas. The status of Crimea must be resolved in the next 15 years through bilateral negotiations. Donbas will be discussed personally by Zelensky and Putin.

Russian troops have already begun to retreat from Kyiv and Chernihiv, but not from eastern Ukraine. And the Russian side went to Moscow to discuss the decision, so there are no results yet.

During the negotiations, hostilities on the territory of Ukraine actually continue.
