The United Nations is calling for peace and calling for a ceasefire. Secretary-General Guterres today called for an end to what he called the absurd war in Ukraine.
“The continuation of the war in Ukraine is morally unacceptable, politically indefensible and militarily meaningless. Even if Mariupol falls, Ukraine can not be conquered city by city, street by street, house by house. That war cannot be won. Sooner or later, we will have to move from the battlefield to the negotiating table.”, said Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary-General.
The Kremlin today assessed that the negotiations with Kyiv are insufficiently “essential”. “Zelenskyy said that without negotiations, the war will not end” and that he was ready to negotiate Ukraine’s withdrawal from NATO membership.
