Russia Ukraine ceasefire talks – Ukraine and Russia conflict has become one of the hottest topics in international politics since the first day the Russian President announced a special military action on Ukraine.
Russian President Mr. Vladimir Putin claims that it is not a war but a special military action in order to save the Ukrainian public from the noisy influenced Ukrainian government.
Since the very first day till now, there have been many initiatives by different governments, including Israel, India, French, Poland, And other European countries, to come to a compromise to announce a ceasefire between both of the countries.
The war is still going at its speed which means no ceasefire talks have seen any success till now, and innocent people are dying every day.

Russia Ukraine Ceasefire Talks Round 1
Russian President Mr. Vladimir Putin announced a special military action against Ukrainians on 24th February 2022. After four days of the war, on 28th February 2022, Delegations of both countries met on the Belarus Ukraine border and tried to negotiate all the terms of the ceasefire.
As per the Ukrainian media, initially, their goal was to achieve an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops from all the Ukrainian cities. But both countries were not able to come to mutual terms and announced the total ceasefire.

After the first two ceasefire talks were not conclusive, both nations set together on 3rd March 2022 to negotiate the terms of ceasefire once again.

After the talks, the Russian foreign minister insisted that Ukraine must demilitarize before they reach any peace agreement. Apart from that, Russia also told Ukraine to abandon any ambition of joining the North Atlantic treaty organization, also known as NATO.
From the very first day, the Russian President and his delegation have been insisting on two things: the first one is the demilitarization of Ukraine and the second one is to leave all the ambitions of joining the North Atlantic treaty organization.
