Ukraine President Says It Is Time For Meaningful Talks With Moscow

INTERNATIONAL: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Saturday,March 19, has called for comprehensive peace talks with Moscow, saying Russia would otherwise need generations to recover from losses suffered during the war.

Zelenskiy has said Ukraine had always offered solutions for peace and wanted meaningful and honest negotiations on peace and security, without delay.

"I want everyone to hear me now, especially in Moscow. The time has come for a meeting, it is time to talk," he has said in a video address released in the early hours of Saturday.

"The time has come to restore territorial integrity and justice for Ukraine. Otherwise, Russia's losses will be such that it will take you several generations to recover."

The two sides have been involved in talks for weeks with no sign of a breakthrough.

Zelenskiy has said Russian forces were deliberately blocking the supply of humanitarian supplies to cities under attack.

Zelenskiy has mentioned there was no information about how many people had died after a theatre in the city of Mariupol, where hundreds of people had been sheltering, was struck on Wednesday. More than 130 people had been rescued so far, he has said.

More than 9,000 people were evacuated from Ukrainian cities through humanitarian corridors on Friday, March 18, said Zelenskiy, a number that is considerably more than managed to escape on Thursday ,March 17.
