The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has resulted in the deadliest conflict in Europe since World War II and the largest standoff between Moscow and the West since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The unfortunate deaths and devastation that have occurred over the past 10 months have contributed to global depression.

President Vladimir Putin recently stated in an interview, that was aired on Sunday, that Russia is willing to negotiate with all parties involved in the conflict in Ukraine but Kyiv and its Western backers have so far declined to do so.

“We are ready to negotiate with everyone involved about acceptable solutions, but that is up to them – we are not the ones refusing to negotiate, they are,” Putin told Rossiya 1 state television in the interview.

While Kiev claims it won’t stop until every Russian soldier is forced to remove from all of its territory, including Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014, the Kremlin asserts that it will fight until all of its goals are achieved.
