Two weeks after starting an armed war between Russia and Ukraine, no progress has been made in ending this conflict despite high-level talks with other countries involved that have an undoubted interest in ending this dispute.
For its part, Russia established its continuation of the attacks to "demilitarize" the Ukrainian nation, as indicated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, after a negotiation conversation with Sergei Lavrov, his Russian counterpart.
International sanctions against Russia have not been long in coming since the invasion of Ukraine began on February 24. A clear example of this is how the Russian currency has plummeted to record lows, foreign companies withdrawing from the country, and stock markets indicating imminent market default risk.
Although Russia has been hit financially by his actions, this has not stopped Putin from continuing his mission to take Ukraine. Volodymyr Zelensky indicated that he is willing to consider some circumstances regarding Russia's demand not to join NATO and adopt a neutral position.
It's estimated that the talks and negotiations should escalate to the presidency of both countries; however, Russia has made it clear that it will not stop negotiating until it perceives added value from these peace talks. For its part, Ukraine is open to neutrality but will not cede its territory.
