In early April, when Russian troops retreated from the north of Ukraine under the threat of local encirclement and defeat, it was revealed what atrocities they committed in the occupied settlements. Official Kyiv said that after this there can be no negotiations.
The Turkish President lamented that “it was not possible to maintain a positive atmosphere and bring the bloodshed closer“.
“Along with those who, like Turkey, are in favor of a peaceful settlement, there were those who advocated the continuation of the war. Great damage to the parties,” Erdogan complained.
He didn’t specify who he meant.
According to him, “statements of readiness for peace are not enough, peace can only be achieved through a responsible approach.”
