The Ukraine – Russia conflict continues as the talks continue. Ukraine Presidential Adviser Mikhaylo Podolyak says both sides discussed “ceasefire and the end of combat actions on the territory of Ukraine.”
“The parties discussed holding another round of negotiations where these decisions can develop,” he said.
“I do not really believe in the result of this meeting, but let them try so that no citizen of Ukraine would have any doubt that I, as president, did not try to stop the war when there was even a small chance,” President Zelensky said Sunday.
President Zelensky also accused Russia of war crimes for the bombing of Kharkiv. He added that he is currently analyzing the talks between Russia and Ukraine.
Belarus has been the host of a joint military exercise with Russia. Its borders are also close to the capital city of Kyiv. Now, a 40-mile long Russian convoy is seen passing through the border on the way to Kyiv. The convoy includes tanks, artillery, armory, and logistical vehicles.
Australia sends a $50 million support package including missiles to Ukraine. The package contains lethal and non-lethal aid to be used to defend the country.
“We are answering the call from President (Volodymyr) Zelensky: he said we need ammo, not a ride and that’s exactly what we’re doing… we’ll provide 50 million US dollars to support Ukraine, lethal and non-lethal support… we’re talking missiles, we’re talking ammunition,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
A further $25 million will be for humanitarian support for the hundreds of thousands fleeing Ukraine and those displaced by war.
The war continues as many countries continue to sanction Russia in the hopes to deter any further invasion. Many social media outlets have also helped censor information regarding the conflict.
