As the war between Ukraine and Russia escalates, Russia has given four conditions that are to be met before the assault is put to halt. This latest development came after the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has sworn to punish the Russian troops for indiscriminate killings of Civilians.
Earlier, First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska had posted on Instagram with photos of five children from 18 months to 14 years who were killed in the war. In an emotional plea she urged the media to reveal the ugly truth of the Russian troops “killing kids”.
Meanwhile, Zelensky is reacting to the killings of eight Ukraine civilians who tried to escape the capital city Kiev during the weekend.
The angered President was quoted saying:
“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will punish everyone who committed atrocities in this war. On our land.”
“We will find every b*****d.”
Nevertheless, Russia in the wake of the event has listed four conditions that are to be met before the war is halted.
The first condition was that Ukraine are to cease all military action and backed down from the fight. According to a trusted source, Russia will totally cease fire when Ukraine drop military action – barring all support from the West.
The second condition was that Ukraine should change its constitution to embrace neutrality hence are to cancel out all dubious additions that tilted the country sovereignty rule.
The third condition was that Ukraine should accept Crimea as part of the Russian territory. According to correspondents, Russia are not willing to let go of Crimea despite strong resistance from the Ukrainian government.
The fourth and final conditions was that Ukraine should acknowledged Donetsk and Lugansk as autonomous nations. These separatist republics have been under Russia’s radar since they got their independent status as the former Soviet Union powerhouse demands an end to the long drama.
These conditions are what Russia have been fighting for since the onset but it appears quite difficult to be met by Ukraine who have appeared to be resistant – more than what Putin had anticipated.
With the west throwing in sanctions on the country’s financial institutions as well as providing humanitarian aid to Ukrainians, Russia has resorted to “slow confiscation”.
