Russian and Ukrainian officials were optimistic yesterday about the future of the peace talks between the two parties. According to the agency ReutersRussia’s delegate, Slutsky, referred to a possible joint signing of documents in the coming days, while Ukraine’s negotiator, Podolyak, also expressed hope that results will be achieved within days.
For its part, this weekend Russian attacks on the country have intensified. In one of these attacks, the Russian armed forces have bombed a training center in Ukraine that is only 10 kilometers from the Polish border, a border through which a large part of the weapons that the NATO countries are ceding to Ukraine are entering. In this regard, Russia has indicated that it regards Western arms convoys as legitimate targets.
The US has warned China about the possibility that it will evade sanctions against Russia and come to its aid. There has also been news about Russia’s request for weapons from China, something that, if the Asian country agreed to the request, would radically cloud its relationship with Western powers.
