For the first time since the start of the conflict, the Russian and Ukrainian foreign ministers met on neutral ground in the city of Antalya, Turkey. This meeting is part of the aftermath of the attack on the maternity hospital of Mariupoul. Three people died from this attack according to the Ukrainians.

“We must continue the dialogue with Ukraine,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov after a meeting on Thursday with his Ukrainian counterpart in Turkey. This meeting takes place the day after the attack on the Mariupoul maternity hospital. Three people died from this attack according to the Ukrainians.

‘No progress’

During this meeting, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, considered that no “progress” had been made. The minister was speaking at a press conference after an hour and a half of discussions with his Russian counterpart. “The most tragic situation is currently unfolding in the city of Mariupol. The city is bombarded from the air. It was hit by artillery fire. I came here to solve humanitarian issues, to set up the corridors humanitarian aid, to allow people to come in and out of Mariupol. Unfortunately, we have not made any progress on the question or on the other subjects with Russia”, declared Dmytro Koulouba.

Russia denies attack on Mariupoul maternity hospital

According to him, the Russian minister could not make a commitment today regarding the evacuation of civilians via his humanitarian corridors. No progress either for a ceasefire in this city where the attack on the pediatric hospital left three dead and more than a dozen injured. This bombardment was described as war crimes, a barbaric use of force and aroused the indignation of Ukrainian and Western heads of state.

According to the head of Russian diplomacy, the place served as a base for Ukrainian nationalists. He also reportedly assured Ukraine that Russia would continue its aggression until he agreed to capitulate. But Ukraine has not surrendered, is not surrendering and will not surrender to hammer the representative of Ukraine in the face of journalists.
