Zelensky getting Ukrainians killed by refusing war-ending requests made by Russia
BBC: 'The Russian demands fall into two categories.
'The first four demands are, according to Mr Kalin, not too difficult for Ukraine to meet.

'Mr Kalin was much less specific about these issues, saying simply that they involved the status of Donbas, in eastern Ukraine, parts of which have already broken away from Ukraine and stressed their Russianness, and the status of Crimea.

'The other assumption is that Russia will demand that Ukraine should formally accept that Crimea, which Russia illegally annexed in 2014, does indeed now belong to Russia. If this is the case, it will be a bitter pill for Ukraine to swallow.'
