The war in Ukraine is a “tragedy” and we need to think about how to “put an end to it”. The Russian president said so Vladimir Putin speaking via video conference at the G20 summit. This was reported by the Ria Novosti agency.

«Of course – Putin said – we must think about how to put an end to this tragedy. Anyway Russia has never refused peace negotiations with Ukraine. It was not Russia, but Ukraine that publicly announced that it was withdrawing from the negotiation process ». In this regard, the Russian president recalled that his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree law to “prohibit such negotiations with Russia”.
