On the eve of the peace conference in Switzerland to which Moscow has not been invited, Vladimir Putin presented conditions contradicting Ukraine’s peace aspirations.

Vladimir Putin on Friday, June 14, described the presented conditions as “very simple” and demanded Kyiv withdraw its forces from Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia in eastern and southern Ukraine.

Putin stated that if Ukraine withdraws its forces from these four specific regions, Moscow would order a ceasefire and engage in negotiations.

The Russian President emphasized that this order would be implemented “immediately,” ensuring the safe and unhindered withdrawal of Ukrainian forces.

Russia controls nearly a fifth of Ukrainian territory in the third year of the war. Ukraine insists that peace can only be achieved through complete withdrawal of Russian forces and restoration of its territorial integrity.

Additionally, Joe Biden and Volodymyr Zelensky have signed a 10-year bilateral defense pact, symbolizing robust US support for Ukraine against Russian aggression.

The agreement pledges extensive military assistance, joint military exercises, and a commitment to bolstering Ukraine’s defenses against external threats.

Moreover, the United States has reiterated its steadfast stance alongside Ukraine, condemning Russian actions and advocating for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in international forums.
