Russia negotiations went ‘pretty good’ says Ukraine president after peace talks

The Ukraine president, Volodymyr Zelensky has announced that Russia negotiations on Monday turned out to be yielding a positive outcome. 

Hopes have been raised that an agreement can be reached with Russia after Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said talks were “pretty good”

Zelensky said that negotiations with Russia are to continue on Tuesday and have been going “pretty good”.

He also said he spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett as part of a negotiation effort to end the war with Russia “with a fair peace.”

“Our delegation also worked on this in negotiations with the Russian party,” Zelensky said in his nightly video address.

“Pretty good, as I was told. But let’s see. They will continue tomorrow.” Volodymyr Zelensky says.

Russia has not so far been able to make the breakthroughs it would have been hoping for due to tough resistance from Ukrainians who have fought for every inch of ground and now a Ukraine official believes that the invasion will probably fail within two more months.

Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser to the Ukrainian president’s chief of staff, said late on Monday that he thinks Russia will have run out of resources by early May.

In a video published by several Ukrainian media, Arestovich said the exact timing would depend on how much resources the Kremlin was willing to commit to the campaign.

“I think that no later than in May, early May, we should have a peace agreement, maybe much earlier, we will see, I am talking about the latest possible dates,” Arestovich said.

“We are at a fork in the road now: there will either be a peace deal struck very quickly, within a week or two, with troop withdrawal and everything, or there will be an attempt to scrape together some, say, Syrians for a round two and, when we grind them too, an agreement by mid-April or late April.”

Zelensky used his nightly address to also praise an anti-war protester who interrupted a live news bulletin on Russia’s state TV Channel One on Monday, holding up a sign behind the studio presenter and shouting slogans denouncing the war in Ukraine.

The sign, in English and Russian, read: “NO WAR. Stop the war. Don’t believe propaganda. They are lying to you here.”

Another phrase, which looked like “Russians against war”, was partly obscured.

The extraordinary act of dissent took place on day 19 of the war which began when Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24 in what he called a special military operation.

“Stop the war. No to war,” the woman protester could be heard shouting, as the news anchor continued to read from her teleprompter.

The protester could be seen and heard for several seconds before the channel switched to a different report to remove her from the screen.

Zelensky said: “I am grateful to those Russians who do not stop trying to convey the truth. To those who fight disinformation and tell the truth, real facts to their friends and loved ones.

“And personally to the woman who entered the studio of Channel One with a poster against the war.”

Kira Yarmysh, spokeswoman for jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny, wrote on Twitter : “Wow, that girl is cool.”

She posted a video of the incident, which quickly racked up more than 2.6 million views
