Negotiations Between The Delegations of Russia And Ukraine Have Ended

The first round of talks between Ukrainian and Russian delegations held at the border with Belarus has ended.

The outcome of the negotiations was not made public. The talks carried on for several hours and broke down twice.

Negotiators from Ukraine and Russia will return to their capital cities for consultations. The Russian delegation head, Vladimir Medinsky, said the two sides had “agreed to keep the negotiations going.”

Meanwhile, The head of the regional administration in Kharkiv, Oleg Synegubov, has said that at least 11 people were killed and dozens of others wounded during Russian rocket attacks on the eastern Ukrainian city.

The city, Ukraine’s second-largest, has become one of the major battlegrounds since Moscow launched its invasion.

Synegubov said Russian forces were firing artillery at residential areas of Kharkiv where there are no Ukrainian army positions or strategic infrastructure.

“This is happening in the daytime, when people have gone out to the pharmacy, for groceries, or for drinking water. It’s a crime,” he said.

It was not immediately possible to independently verify the casualty figures. Earlier Interior Ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko said Russian rocket bombardments on Kharkiv on Monday had killed dozens of people.

Russian President Vladamir Putin reportedly told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that Ukraine solution is possible only if Russia’s security interests are considered.
