Russia – Ceasefire
President Vladimir Putin immediate priority is ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops and artillery from Ukrainian territory all around.
The Russian political leadership proposal for peace talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky cannot be held on the sidelines while Russian forces are authorized to target civilian residential areas apparent in the images from western and international media.
The Ukrainian citizens forced to flee their homeland as refugees across the border and many local residents huddled in subway stations verify direct threats to lives of innocent civilians that are unacceptable.
The situation is contradictory to Russian political statement on military operation limited to Ukraine’s military and key infrastructure though they are completely unnecessary and counterproductive.
President Vladimir Putin’s commitment to peace is dependent on terminating military aggression against Ukraine. The Russian leadership respect for lives and Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is the urgent requirement exemplifying Russia’s obligation to end the conflict.
President Vladimir Putin is urged to reverse course from military engagement to peaceful resolution, the only way to mitigate the current crisis.
The Ukraine – Russia peace treaty will be presented in the later hours considering the matter is related to prolonged dispute resulting in status quo. Furthermore, the multiple parties interests and concerns merit equal attention and solutions.
The patience in this regard is much appreciated.
