Russia has decided to drastically cut its military activity focused on Kyiv and Chernihiv in Ukraine.
Ukrainian negotiators at conflict talks with Russia in Turkey on Tuesday said they were calling for an international agreement under which other countries would serve as guarantors of Ukraine’s security.
“We want an international mechanism of security guarantees where guarantor countries will act in a similar way to NATO’s Article Number Five — and even more firmly,”
David Arakhamia, a Ukrainian negotiator, told reporters after talks with a Russian delegation.
Russia will “radically” reduce its military activity in northern Ukraine, including near the capital Kyiv, after “meaningful” talks in Istanbul, Moscow’s negotiators said. – THE HINDU
