Russia’s foreign minister ‘will not give up on negotiations’ after withdrawal from Kharkiv


After Russia’s de facto withdrawal from Kharkiv in the northeastern part of the country after being pushed by a Ukrainian offensive, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov suggested the possibility of negotiations, and the background is attracting attention.

According to Sputnik news agency on the 11th (local time), Minister Lavrov said in an interview with Russian state TV channel ‘Rosiya 24’ that “Russia has not given up on negotiations with Ukraine.”

“We do not refuse to negotiate,” he said.

“Russia knows how to achieve its goals,” Lavrov added.

On the 10th (local time), the 199th day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Ukraine recaptured Izium and Kupiansk, the key points of Kharkiv. It is considered to be the largest crime since the early days of the war since Kiiu Mercury.

Russia, on the other hand, has virtually withdrawn its troops from the region and relocated it to Donetsk Oblast, evacuating residents to Russia. In addition, Ukraine is strengthening its offensive in southern Kherson.
