Cease-fire talks between Russia and Ukraine fail to find Common Ground

Ukraine War

Ukraine and Russia made “no progress” towards agreeing on a 24-hour cease-fire after talks in Turkey, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said after a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. “It seems that there are other decision-makers for this matter in Russia,” Dmytro Kuleba said, in a thinly veiled reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin, suggesting the decision was out of Moscow Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s hands. Kuleba described his meeting with Lavrov in Antalya as “difficult” and accused his opposite number of bringing “traditional narratives” to the table. “I want to repeat that Ukraine has not surrendered, does not surrender, and will not surrender,” Kuleba said.
