Russia has given Ukraine two conditions to stop the ongoing war which entered Day 12 on Monday.

The country asked its neighbour to give up three regions and scrap its Army, Mirror reports.

The Kremlin wants Ukraine “demilitarised” and demanded that Donetsk and Lugansk become independent states.

 

The regions have witnessed battles between Russian backed separatists and Ukrainian forces for eight years.

The Federation has also demanded that Ukraine recognise Crimea as part of Russia.

 

A spokesperson for the Russian government listed the conditions ahead of the peace talks.

 

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said:

 “They should make amendments to the constitution according to which Ukraine would reject any aims to enter any bloc. This is possible only by making changes to the constitution.

“We really are finishing the demilitarisation of Ukraine. We will finish it.

“But the main thing is that Ukraine ceases its military action. They should stop their military action and then no one will shoot.”
