Zelensky aide says report on ceasefire draft agreement only covers Russian stance

Mikhail Podolyak, a top adviser of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, says a Financial Times report detailing a possible ceasefire agreement contains only the Russian position, and not Ukraine’s counter.

He indicates that the only matters he can say are under discussion are a ceasefire, Russian troops leaving Ukraine, and security guarantees.

The Financial Times story had said the sides were nearing a deal that would see Ukraine adopt a policy of neutrality, shrink its military, and agree not to enter security pacts with Western allies.
