    Almost five months after the start of the war in Ukrainea Russia still hasn’t given up on the idea of ​​making the country of Volodymyr Zelensky surrender. “The Ukrainian side can end (the conflict) today,” said Dmitri Peskov, a spokesman for Vladimir Putin this Tuesday, 28. “It must order the nationalist units and the Ukrainian soldiers to hand over their weapons and all the conditions established by Russia must be applied”, he added. “Then it will all be over in a day,” he concluded. According to Peskov, there is no deadline or timetable defined by the Russians: “We are guided by the statements of our president”. Peskov reiterated that “the special military operation proceeds according to plans,” using the euphemism Russia uses to refer to the attack on Ukraine.

    That announcement comes a day after Zelenksy spoke at the summit of G7 and ask for more military help and support to bring the war to an end before the end of the year, when it is winter in the northern hemisphere, and after Russian troops bomb a crowded shopping mall and leave at least 18 people dead and 36 missing. This attack, carried out in a region that presents no danger and is just trying to live normally, as reported by Zelensky, only made the Ukrainians reinvigorate their determination even more.
