Russia has told Ukraine that it is prepared to end military activity if Ukraine satisfies several conditions, a Kremlin spokesperson said, according to Reuters.
"And they were told that all this can be stopped in a moment," Dmitry Peskov said, according to the outlet.
"We really are finishing the demilitarisation of Ukraine. We will finish it. But the main thing is that Ukraine ceases its military action. They should stop their military action and then no one will shoot," he said. "They should make amendments to the constitution according to which Ukraine would reject any aims to enter any bloc."
"We have also spoken about how they should recognise that Crimea is Russian territory and that they need to recognise that Donetsk and Lugansk are independent states. And that’s it. It will stop in a moment," Peskov said.
The outlet reported that Peskov said it is "not true" that Russia is calling for Ukraine to surrender Kyiv.
Ukrainians have been bravely defending their country in the face of a brutal Russian onslaught that has wreaked death and destruction, killing many, including civilians.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who has valiantly rallied Ukrainians to resist the Russian invasion, recently released a video in which he declared that he is still in Kyiv.
"I stay in Kyiv. On Bankova Street. I'm not hiding. And I'm not afraid of anyone. As long as it's necessary to win in our patriotic war," he said, according to Sky News.
