War developments: The end of the first round of negotiations

Today, Monday, he witnessed successive developments at the level of the crisis in Ukraine, the most prominent of which was the signing of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's request to join the European Union, while one of his senior advisers announced that the first round of talks with Russia on ending the war on Ukraine had ended.

And the Ukrainian parliament's account on Twitter published a picture of President Zelensky while signing his country's application to join the European Union, saying that  Zelensky signed Ukraine's application to join the European Union it is a historic moment. 

The Ukrainian president's office said the application to join, which aims to strengthen ties between Ukraine and Europe, had been sent to Brussels, where the 27-nation European Union is based.

But the request to join is largely symbolic. The process may take years. Membership of the European Union must be with the unanimous consent of all members.

Simultaneously, the Russian and Ukrainian delegations left the negotiating room and returned to their countries to  consult in their capital after they agreed to hold a  second round  of talks, the two sides announced.

 The two sides have identified a series of priorities and issues that require some decisions  before holding a second round of negotiations, said Mikhailo Podolyak, one of the Ukrainian negotiators, while his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Medinsky, indicated that the new meeting will take place "soon" on the Polish-Belarus border.

Zelensky had called on Russian soldiers to  lay down their arms  in a video released ahead of negotiations with Moscow, during which Kyiv will demand the withdrawal of Russian forces from its territory.

 Lay down your weapons, don't believe your leaders, simply save your lives  Zelensky said, speaking in Russian.

As he said, in a video statement, commenting on the start of negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow I say things frankly as always: I don't count too much on an outcome," but  we have to try. 

He added that he did not want Ukrainians to think in the future that I did not try to stop the war when there was a chance, even a small one, to do so. 

For his part, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that Moscow had opened the door to negotiations because  its blitzkrieg failed  Before the invasion, Kyiv called for negotiations with Moscow, but the latter refused.

Zelensky said that he  does not want missiles, planes and helicopters to fly into Ukraine from Belarus  during a phone conversation with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, whose country is a rear base for the Russian invasion.

 I don't want troops to arrive in Ukraine from Belarus, and (Lukashenko) assured me of that he added.

On the other hand, Russian President Vladimir Putin told his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, that he requires the recognition of Crimea as Russian territory to stop the invasion of Ukraine, the declaration of Kyiv's neutrality and the Ukrainian government's abandonment of what he described as  Nazi.

The Kremlin said, in a statement following a phone call between the two presidents, that Putin stipulated  the recognition of Russia's sovereignty over Crimea, the disarmament of the Ukrainian state, its abandonment of Nazism and the guarantee of its neutral status to the settlement of the conflict.


Invading Ukraine will unleash forces the Kremlin can't control
