Russ­ian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin has declared he is pre­pared to call a cease­fire in the Ukraine con­flict, but only if Kyiv meets two key demands: with­draw­ing troops from four regions seized by Russ­ian forces, and aban­don­ing its plans to join NATO.

Putin made the sur­prise announce­ment on the eve of a major peace con­fer­ence in Switzer­land, where world lead­ers will gath­er to dis­cuss a roadmap for end­ing the war. How­ev­er, his con­di­tions are seen as a non-starter by Ukraine, which has repeat­ed­ly refused to cede any ter­ri­to­ry to Moscow.

The Russ­ian leader also engaged in more saber-rat­tling, claim­ing West­ern lead­ers are push­ing the world towards the “point of no return” on the risk of nuclear war. He warned that calls for Rus­si­a’s “strate­gic defeat” show the “extreme reck­less­ness” of West­ern politicians.

Putin’s move comes as Ukraine’s Pres­i­dent Volodymyr Zelen­skyy has been bol­stered by a series of recent diplo­mat­ic and mil­i­tary vic­to­ries. At the G7 sum­mit in Italy this week, Zelen­skyy secured a his­toric $50 bil­lion loan deal backed by frozen Russ­ian assets, as well as a major new secu­ri­ty pact with the US.
