Vladimir Medinsky, a Kremlin aide, who is leading the Russian delegation to the talks, said negotiations with the Ukrainian side would continue “every day, seven days a week” via video, as he wrote on his Telegram channel after Monday’s talks. He said coordination saves time and money.

“The work is difficult,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, but the fact that talks were continuing was positive.

The Ukrainian military also said it had spotted a Russian reconnaissance drone that crossed the border into neighboring Poland. The Ukrainian Air Force announced that the Ukrainian air defenses had shot down the drone after it crossed back into Ukrainian airspace.

Apparently the drone was monitoring a Ukrainian military training center near the Polish border with russian missiles On Sunday, at least 35 people were killed.

This is the latest incident in recent days of a war zone drone crossing the airspace of a NATO member.

Romania said it was investigating the crash of a drone on its territory. Another drone, suspected of Ukrainian origin, crashed days earlier in Croatia, prompting the government there to ask the French military to conduct a reconnaissance flight in its airspace. The French military said that flight did not show anything suspicious.

Civilian casualties Officials warn they may rise sharply, as the fighting moves more into cities than outlying suburbs, and heavy Russian weapons are used to sway buildings to destroy the Ukrainian resistance.

Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Irina Verychuk said there were plans to evacuate civilians through nine humanitarian corridors on Tuesday, including a humanitarian aid convoy bound for the besieged port city of Mariupol.

The driver of one of the buses was wounded by the bombing, and a woman who was traveling in a civilian car was killed. The rest made it to safety.

People familiar with the matter said Monday that the White House is discussing a possible Biden visit to Europe in the coming weeks.

The weapons provided to Ukraine by the United States and its European allies – especially anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons – played an important role in holding back the advance of the Russian ground forces, which suffered heavy losses in the north as they attempted to encircle Kyiv.

Early Tuesday local time, Mr. Zelensky urged Russian forces to stop fighting, citing heavy casualties. “If you surrender to our forces, we will treat you the way people are supposed to be treated. Like people, dignified. In a way you were not treated in your army,” he said in a statement.

He thanked those Russians who expressed their opposition to the war, and one anti-war protester mentioned Run on the evening news package On Channel One of Russia’s state television on Monday holding a poster that read: “No to war. Stop the war. Don’t believe the propaganda. They are lying to you here. The Russians are against the war.” “Stop the war, no war,” she yelled before the camera went off.

On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said that its forces had captured a “stronghold of nationalists and foreign mercenaries” north of Kyiv, seizing 10 Javelin missile systems and other weapons supplied by Western countries to Ukraine.

Russian ground offensives around Kyiv and the eastern city of Kharkiv appear to have faltered as Moscow’s forces shift to targeting civilian infrastructure and residential areas from afar. In the south, Russia has made faster progress, aided by its former military presence in Crimea, which it annexed in 2014 and with more favorable terrain.

The Russian Defense Ministry said it had taken control of the entire Kherson region in southern Ukraine.
