Meanwhile, the third round of negotiations between the
delegations of Ukraine and Russia began on Monday,
informed the Belarus Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
The two countries will discuss political, humanitarian
aspects and a military settlement during the third round of
talks, Sputnik reported citing the head of the Russian
delegation, presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky.
Notably, Russian forces launched military operations in
Ukraine on February 24, three days after Moscow
recognized Ukraine’s breakaway regions, Donetsk and
Luhansk as independent republics followed by the
announcement of a “special military operation” to
“demilitarize” and “denazify” Ukraine. (ANI)
