Putin says Russia wants End to War in Ukraine


Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated that the war in Ukraine must come to an end through diplomatic means. This announcement comes after the United States promised continued support for Ukraine and its President, Volodymyr Zelensky. Putin emphasized that Russia’s goal is not to escalate the conflict, but rather to end it as soon as possible.

“Our goal is not to spin the flywheel of military conflict, but, on the contrary, to end this war,” Putin said. “We will strive for an end to this, and the sooner the better, of course.”

“I have said many times: the intensification of hostilities leads to unjustified losses,” Putin told reporters.

“All armed conflicts end one way or another with some kind of negotiations on the diplomatic track,” he added. “Sooner or later, any parties in a state of conflict sit down and make an agreement. The sooner this realization comes to those who oppose us, the better. We have never given up on this.”

Ukraine and its allies have been sceptical of Russia’s commitment to negotiating a resolution, as they suspect it is a tactic to stall after recent setbacks in the ongoing war. Kyiv has demanded that Russia halt its attacks and relinquish control of any seized territory before talks can begin.

He said it was “quite old” and did not work like Russia’s S-300 system. “An antidote will always be found,” he said, boasting Russia would “crack” the Patriots.

“So those who do it are doing it in vain. It’s just prolonging the conflict, that’s all.”

Putin also dismissed the effectiveness of a Patriot air defence system that the US has agreed to provide to Ukraine, claiming that Russia would find a way to counter it. Putin also announced plans to sign a decree next week in response to a price cap on Russian oil imposed by Western countries in an effort to limit Russia’s ability to fund the war.
