Zelensky will address Congress on Wednesday


A fourth round of talks aimed at ending or limiting the devastating bombardment of Ukraine began on Monday, with the Russian side claiming significant progress and the bloodied but adamant Ukrainians demanding a ceasefire, the immediate withdrawal of all Russian troops and security guarantees.

The talks come two days before Ukrainian President Volodymy Zelenskyy is due to make his plea for peace – and more weapons – in a virtual address to Congress scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Monday’s talks were halted for a “technical break” and will continue on Tuesday, an adviser to Zelenskyy said. Mikhail Podolyak said further work was needed in the sub-committees and clarification of some terms was underway. Podolyak said Ukraine’s demands remained unchanged despite a growing humanitarian crisis in some cities that has left hundreds of thousands of civilians struggling to get basic necessities such as food, water and medical supplies.
