There is nothing more haunting than seeing the image of civilian bodies piling up on the streets of Ukraine’s cities. Russians continue to attack the southern areas of Ukraine, but there are also opening up to peace talks. Officials and spectators are skeptical about ever reaching peace because they think that the meetings are made to delay a larger attack that is coming from the Russians.
There is an estimated $100 billion in damage during the invasion of Ukraine. When the diplomats of Russia and Ukraine met on Thursday, they failed to find the resolution to the war. The Russians refuse to back down until the Ukrainians demilitarize their side. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said, “The broad narrative he conveyed to me is that they will continue their aggression until Ukraine meets their demands, and the least of these demands is surrender.”
