According to Russian media reports, Moscow “wants to resolve the crisis once and for all, not just establish a ceasefire,” the Russian president reportedly said.

For Putin, freezing hostilities would not be the way to resolve the current conflict. He made this statement after meeting with Viktor Orban, the president of Hungary, who has just assumed the rotating presidency of the EU Council of Ministers.

It was then that Putin stated that a: “There is no ceasefire or any kind of pause that the kyiv regime can use to recoup losses, regroup and rearm. Russia is in favour of a complete and definitive end to the conflict.”

Putin, however, noted that the conflict can only end if a number of conditions are met. In particular, the Russian leader stressed that kyiv must withdraw its forces from Donbas, as well as from the former Ukrainian regions of Zaporozhye and Kherson, all of which were officially incorporated into Russia following votes in public referendums, according to the published information.

There are other conditions, Putin added, but he said they are a matter for discussion. “a fairly detailed consideration in the course of possible joint work.”

Orban said that Moscow and kyiv’s positions on the conflict were very far apart and that a significant effort would be needed to end the fighting.
