NATO promises more help for Ukraine | DW News

Ukraine’s top negotiator, Mikhailo Podolyak, said Kyiv rejected proposals by Russia to adopt a neutral status comparable to Austria or Sweden as part of a cease-fire agreement. Russia’s chief negotiator, Vladimir Medinsky, had earlier said that Ukraine offered an Austrian or Swedish model of demilitarization, “but at the same time a state with its own army and navy.” But Podolyak said, “Ukraine is now in a direct state of war with Russia. Consequently, the model can only be ‘Ukrainian’ and only on legally verified security guarantees.”

Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, Iryna Vereshchuk, said there was still no agreement on safe evacuations of civilians out of embattled towns and villages. “The question of humanitarian corridors for Izyum and Mariupol is open. It is currently impossible to get people out of there safely,” Vereshchuk said in a video address. “Ways for the delivery of food and medicines to captured cities are being worked out,” she added. The northeastern city of Izyum has been under siege by Russian forces, and the port city of Mariupol has been enclosed for days. Vereshchuk said Russian forces were in control of a hospital they captured on Tuesday in Mariupol and accused them of holding 400 staff and patients hostage.

  1. I'm not sure why NATO needs to be involved for "concerned nations" to be supporting Ukraine. Any nation should be able to supply any support it can. Not stopping Putin now is tacit approval of future abuses.

  2. There is no need for NATO to get involved with boots on the ground, what NATO needs to do is to push the weaponry the Ukrainians need to destroy the Russian war machine! Think the Vietnam War my friends!

  3. The only option is to give the whole of Ukraine (with Crimea), the withdrawal of troops and compensation for the destruction of the country … this is a minimum plan

  4. Phuk your mortality. Ukraine's fall was inevitable after NATO's advance to the Russian border. Ukraine is not worth a nuclear war. My family's survival is not worth risking over this far away conflict. Go join the Ukrainian Army if you want, but stay the phukk away from me and mine!

  5. Finish this Ukraine do not compromise, you live free and seperate from russia or who ever. If you give a inch then russia will take that as a advantage and start bombing again so you will give more

  6. When peace negotiation succeed. What would happen to the deaths of innocent civilians and children? Shall they say just a casualties of war? Without giving them justice? and without prosecuting the war criminals?

  7. It is time for us to intervene, look at what Ukraine is enduring, who are we to allow such aggression from an old enemy ? Ukraine did not deserve this nobody deserves this.
