Moscow to restart talks if Kiev shows 'constructive' attitude

Russian Foreign Ministry said Russia is prepared to restart negotiations with Ukraine if Kiev approached them with a "positive" attitude. Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Rudenko said freezing the talks "was not our initiative" and that Russia could return to the negotiating table as soon as Ukraine "reacts" to proposals previously put forward by the Russian diplomatic team.

Rudenko also said Moscow is open to discussing exchanging Ukrainian soldiers evacuated from Azovstal for its troops held in Ukraine. According to information provided by the Russian government, 2,439 Ukrainian fighters have surrendered as Russia took control of Mariupol.
