Putin Talks About Peace Talks During News Conference In Kyrgyzstan

…Says ‘We Are Ready For Agreements

Vladimir Putin has said Russia may have to strike a deal with Ukraine to end its war.

Speaking at a news conference in Kyrgyzstan, the Russian president also admitted there had been problems in mobilising hundreds of thousands of conscripts to fight in the conflict.

Russia has suffered a series of military setbacks since launching its invasion of Ukraine in February this year.

In recent months, Ukraine has regained control of significant areas of occupied territory in the east, while Russia most recently ceded ground in the southern city of Kherson.

It is one of the first times he has spoken publicly about a potential peace deal.

The sticking point is likely to be over Crimea and other Ukrainian territories occupied by Russia.

This includes Crimea, which Russia annexed during an illegal invasion in 2014.

He also annexed the regions of Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia following referenda in September which the West labelled a “sham”.

Last month, Mr Putin demanded the West must formally recognise the four regions before peace talks can go ahead.

On Friday, he also admitted that there had been some problems procuring equipment and clothes for the hundreds of thousands of conscripts called up to fight in Ukraine.

At the news conference in Bishkek, he admitted there had been issues related to supplying the 300,000 men who were called up in a mobilisation drive in September and October.
