"The requirements are very simple," said President Putin, who named them the full withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the entire Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions in Russia's eastern and southern Ukraine following the 2022 invasion. June 14.

"Once they state in Kyiv it is ready for the decision and begin the actual troop withdrawal from these areas, and also officially announce the cancellation of their plans to join NATO - on our part, immediately, literally in the same minute, orders will follow to stop firing and start negotiations," he said.

"I repeat, we will do it soon. Of course, we will simultaneously guarantee the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops and formations without a hitch and safe," he said.

Russia took control of nearly a fifth of Ukrainian territory in the third year of war. Meanwhile, Ukraine says peace can only be achieved through the full withdrawal of Russian troops and the restoration of its territorial integrity.
