Russian President Vladimir Putin issued another warning on Sunday that the war would end as soon as Ukraine surrendered its weapons. Hundreds (possibly thousands) of people have been killed so far in Russia’s “military operation” against Ukraine. But the Russian president says the war will only end if Kyiv lays down its arms and meets all the demands of the Kremlin. Putin’s threat came in a telephone conversation with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

“Ukraine accepts our terms, the war will end,” Putin said in talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to Russian media, Vladimir Putin has made it clear to the Turkish president that he is not willing to back down in Ukraine without complying with his terms.

Significantly, in the past, many world leaders, including Prime Minister Modi, have called Putin and called for a negotiated solution to Ukraine. But Putin is not ready to listen. On the contrary, Putin says he attacked Ukraine to stop the genocide.

Russia has said in talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that “it was told that a special military operation could be stopped only if Kyiv was closed … and Russia’s demands were met.”

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February, citing Ukraine’s rapprochement with the West and national security concerns over its move to join NATO. But Moscow has insisted its attack will not end until Ukraine’s military capabilities are destroyed and the country is liberated from “neo-Nazis”.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron spoke again with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two leaders discussed for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
