Moscow (Times Of Ocean)- Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to continue the invasion of Ukraine until his country’s “noble” aims were met.
In a rare public appearance, he said peace talks had come to an end and the invasion was proceeding according to plan.
A Ukrainian official, however, told Reuters that negotiations are difficult, but they are ongoing.
Putin’s remarks were his first on the conflict in more than a week.
“On the one hand, we are helping and saving people, and on the other, we are simply taking measures to ensure the security of Russia itself,” Putin insisted.
