Putin refers to war in Ukraine as a War for first time

Ukraine War

Russian President Vladimir Putin has referred to his country’s invasion of Ukraine as a “war” for the first time – and not merely a “special military operation.” In a press conference, Putin said Moscow was striving for peace and was open to negotiations to end the war. The president has long insisted that Russia was NOT waging war on Ukraine – and the use of the word “war” to describe the conflict has effectively been outlawed.
