direct | Cabinet: More Ukrainian translators are needed in healthcare soon, Russia announces ceasefire in Mariupol | Abroad

The most important news at a glance:

– According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, there have been “positive signals” from the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations in Turkey, although Ukraine does not yet intend to reduce its military efforts. He said this in a video message on Telegram last night. Zelensky stressed that he saw no reason to believe the words of “representatives of a country that continues to fight with the intent of our destruction.”

The Kremlin sees it differently. “We cannot say that there was anything promising or any breakthrough,” said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. According to him, there is still much work to be done. He noted that Moscow was confident that Kyiv had submitted its demands in writing.

– According to the Americans, Russian troops are not withdrawing from the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, but only about moving positions. Earlier, Russia announced that it had decided to radically withdraw its forces from the cities of Kyiv and Chernihiv.

– Russia will not immediately demand the ruble as payment for the sale of gas to “unfriendly countries”. President Vladimir Putin demanded it last week due to the sanctions imposed on his country, but according to a Kremlin spokesman, the currency change is being introduced gradually.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte argues that a possible peace plan between Russia and Ukraine in which the latter would lose parts of its territory to Russia does not mean that sanctions against Russia will end. If Russia wants sanctions relief, it must respect the sovereignty of the occupying country and its territory.
