A member of the country’s delegation said a third round of talks between Russia and Ukraine would be held on March 7 to find a solution to the conflict and a ceasefire.
The leader of the ruling People’s Party’s parliamentary group and a member of the Kiev Negotiating Committee, MP David Arajamiya, posted on his Facebook page on social media that the next meeting will take place on Monday on the Belarusian-Polish border.
The first round of talks took place on February 28 and the second on March 3 in Belarus. In the latter case, Kiev and Moscow agreed to establish humanitarian corridors for the evacuation of civilians, in addition to ceasefires, food and medicine supplies during the evacuation of people.
This Sunday, the parties will try again to reopen the humanitarian corridors of the cities of Mariupol and Volnovoka in southeastern Ukraine, which were halted yesterday by unresolved military clashes over Russian and Ukrainian allegations.
The Russian Defense Ministry has accused nationalist groups of blocking the evacuation of civilians in these cities, where they have confirmed the presence of heavy firearms from residential areas and the use of civilians as human shields.
On February 24, Moscow launched a military operation in Ukraine, with officials from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Lugansk (LPR) calling for help preventing the occupation of Kiev.
Earlier, Russia recognized the independence and sovereignty of the two territories and signed agreements on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance with their leaders, including the establishment of diplomatic relations and military assistance.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address on the start of the operation that the goal was to protect the Donbass people from the abuses and genocide of Kiev over the past eight years and to “militarize” Ukraine.
According to the Russian Armed Forces, the attacks targeted military infrastructure, air defense facilities, airports and military aviation. He emphasized that the letter was not a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into Ukraine.
