Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says the least that Russian forces could do is pull out of his country, and thereafter a sit-down talk with Russian President Putin be held.
“This is the bare minimum that we have to start to deoccupation with it should be 100 percent withdrawal of troops,” Zelensky said while appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday.
“First the cease-fire and then we can have a meeting with the Russian president … Let’s simply sit down together.”
Zelensky has been calling for a one and one meeting with President Vladimir Putin for weeks to discuss an end to the war, which has stretched several weeks and killed thousands of Ukrainians and displaced millions.
Meanwhile, Germany’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Annalena Baerbock, is accusing Russia of war crimes after Ukrainian civilians were executed and left lying in the streets of Bucha, Ukraine, over the weekend.
“The images from #Bucha are unbearable,” Baerbock wrote in German on Twitter. “Putin’s rampant violence is wiping out innocent families and knows no bounds.”
“Those responsible for these war crimes must be held accountable,” she added.
