Lukashenko called for a ceasefire in Ukraine, Russia rejected the proposal
The Kremlin has ruled out halting the offensive against Ukraine despite calls from its main ally, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
"On the subject of Ukraine, nothing changes: the special military operation continues, because it is the only means of achieving the goals our country is facing today," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
He specified that President Vladimir Putin will talk with Lukashenko next week about the truce proposed by the Belarusian president.
"Russia cannot ignore the hypothetical danger posed to it by calls to deploy nuclear weapons in Ukraine," Peskov added, commenting on a petition posted on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's website. This is a "very dangerous trend", emphasized the spokesperson.
He defines the discussion of the idea of sending peacekeeping troops to Ukraine as potentially very dangerous. Earlier, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán mentioned similar discussions in the EU.
