Russian dictator Vladimir Putin sent signals to the USA that he was ready to consider a ceasefire in Ukraine.
However, they were rejected in Washington, not wanting to conduct negotiations bypassing Kyiv. This was reported by Reuters with reference to three Russian sources familiar with the progress of the discussions.
According to sources, in 2023, Putin made his position clear publicly, and also conveyed it privately through intermediaries – in particular, through Moscow’s Arab partners in the Middle East.
Putin offered to freeze the conflict on the condition that Russian troops remain on the Ukrainian territories occupied by them.

According to the interlocutors of the agency, Putin’s signals were transmitted to Washington and discussed at a meeting of senior officials, including the White House adviser on national security Jake Sullivandirector of the CIA Bill Burns and the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
In the end, one of the sources told Reuters, in January 2024, Sullivan made a phone call to Putin’s adviser Yuri Ushakov and told him that the United States will not discuss a ceasefire without the participation of Ukraine itself.
Now, the interlocutors of the agency note, the Kremlin sees no point in further contacts with the USA on this issue, so the war will continue.
