The Kremlin has said the sooner Ukraine accepts Russia’s demands, namely Moscow’s claims to Ukrainian territory in the country’s east and south, the sooner war can end.
Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia would achieve its goals “one way or another”, adding Kyiv would be better off accepting Russia’s position and settling at the negotiating table.
Ukraine has pledged to fight until Russia withdraws all of its troops from the country.
Meanwhile, Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says the “defeat of a nuclear power in a conventional war may trigger a nuclear war”, referring to Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine.
In a post on Telegram discussing NATO support for the Ukrainian military, Medvedev said: “Nuclear powers have never lost major conflicts on which their fate depends.”
On the other hand, Ukraine has urged its Western allies to act quickly and supply tanks and air defence systems to Kyiv, saying it was paying with Ukrainian lives at the war’s front lines for the slow pace of discussions over boosting military aid in foreign capitals.
“We have no time, the world does not have this time,” Andriy Yermak, the head of the Ukrainian presidential administration, said in a Telegram post.
