Russian President Vladimir Putin said that from January 6, a ceasefire regime will be introduced in Ukraine for 36 hours.
The Kremlin has announced that Russia will announce a ceasefire in Ukraine from January 6 to 7. On the other hand, Ukrainian President Zelensky regarded Putin’s ceasefire announcement as a step to prevent the advance of the Ukrainian army into the Donbass.
The Kremlin’s written statement said that Putin had ordered the Defense Ministry to temporarily cease fire in Ukraine over the Orthodox Christmas period.
In a statement saying that the ceasefire will be implemented within 36 hours, starting at 12:00 on January 6, “Based on the fact that there are many Orthodox people in the areas where the conflicts occurred, we call on the Ukrainian side to declare a ceasefire, so that people can participate in religious ceremonies during the Christmas period.” it was said.
The head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, called for a ceasefire in Ukraine during the Orthodox Christmas period, which falls on January 6-7.
UKRAINE’S RESPONSE TO THE CHALLENGE
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky responded to Russia’s call for a ceasefire.
Zelensky argued that Russia wanted to use Christmas to stop the advance of Ukrainian troops into the Donbass.
“Everyone in the world knows how the Kremlin used the respite in the war to continue the war with renewed vigor,” the Ukrainian leader said.
Speaking in Russian, in part of his speech, Zelensky addressed the citizens of Russia, noting that they presented the “Formula of Peace” to the Russian government on November 15 and December 12 last year, but it was not accepted by the Kremlin.
STATEMENT “RUSSIA IS PREPARING FOR A NEW ATTACK”
Declaring that the war in Ukraine continues, Zelensky noted that the war will continue as long as Russian soldiers remain in their country.
Claiming that Russia is preparing a new attack, the Ukrainian leader continued:
“Russia will not be able to quietly hide the preparations for a new wave of aggression against Ukraine and all of Europe. The world will know in detail how and when the aggressor is preparing for a new escalation in this war.”
“KEEP YOUR DEBT TO YOU”
Advisor to the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak regarded Russia’s statement on a two-day ceasefire as hypocrisy and said: “Russia must leave the occupied territories, only then there will be a temporary ceasefire.”
Podolyak wrote on his Twitter account:
“Firstly, Ukraine does not attack foreign lands and does not kill civilians, as Russia does. Ukraine destroys members of the occupying army on its territory. Secondly, Russia must leave the occupied territories only then there will be a temporary ceasefire. Keep your hypocrisy to yourself.”
USA: IF PUTIN SERIOUSLY WITHDRAWAL FORCES FROM UKRAINE
US State Department spokesman Ned Price said they believe Russian President Vladimir Putin may have declared a ceasefire to rebuild his army or confuse the world.
“If the goal is to rally for more revenge, more brutality, and more deadly attacks against the Ukrainian people, this cannot be considered a ceasefire. “If Russia is serious about peace and ending this war, it must withdraw its troops from the sovereign territory of Ukraine,” he said.
GERMANY QUALIFIED AS A “SUPPORTED ATTRACTION”
German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock called Russia’s announcement of a temporary ceasefire in Ukraine a “so-called” ceasefire, saying it would bring neither freedom nor security to people in fear.
