On May 25th, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said he had always been open to negotiations with Russia, but only for direct talks with Putin.

Zelensky added that the first step in negotiations with Russia would be the withdrawal of Russian troops to pre-invasion lines.  But recently, neither side has shown signs of negotiating an end to the conflict, and both sides accuse each other of the lack of willingness to talk.

In Russia, President Vladimir Putin has issued an order for people living in Kherson and Zaporozhye to quickly obtain Russian citizenship.  At the same time, a project for the rapid acquisition of citizenship for people in the Donbass was implemented.

The latest front of Russian and Ukrainian forces has reached the edge of the industrial hub of Severo Donetsk, Ukrainian officials said.  After failing to overthrow Zelensky and capture the capital Kyiv, the Russian army has now turned its focus to controlling the Donbass region, currently in stalemate.

At the same time, the European Union, Britain and the United States announced the formation of what they called an “Atrocity Crime Advisory Group” that would coordinate with Ukraine to investigate possible Russian war crimes.  In addition, economic sanctions against Russia are also in progress.
