    The Russian ambassador to the US has sensationally hinted at a split in the Kremlin hierarchy over Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Speaking on Russian state TV, envoy Anatoly Antonov said America is secretly giving the Kremlin the terms of negotiations to halt the brutal fighting. This comes amid a clear failure by the Russian army to make significant new progress in its push to invade areas of eastern Ukraine, after Moscow's forces changed tactics to focus on the region following earlier failings around Kyiv. Antonov, 67, implied that some inside the Kremlin's power structures are ready to give up the fight, move back invading troops and even 'repent' - while stressing he was not among those willing to capitulate. The senior diplomat - seen as a hardliner - said: 'The Americans are pushing us into negotiations, but with certain conditions.  'I would specify three of them,' he said. 'First, to stop military action as part of the special military operation. Second, to move our troops back to where they were before 24 February.' The third, he said, is 'to repent...
    Russia's top diplomat has warned that NATO is now fighting a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine and there is a 'very serious' risk the conflict could turn nuclear.  Sergei Lavrov, speaking on Russian state TV last night, accused western leaders of risking a third world war by supplying Ukraine with weapons with the goal of 'wearing down the Russian army' - an aim he described as an 'illusion'. Accusing NATO and its allies of attempting to bully Russia on the international stage, Lavrov warned that tensions between east and west are now worse than during the Cuban missile crisis at the height of the Cold War. Asked directly about the possibility of a nuclear war, he replied: 'The risks are very significant. I do not want the danger to be artificially inflated [but] it is serious, real. It cannot be underestimated.' Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, has warned that NATO is now fighting a proxy-war against Moscow and there is a 'very significant' risk the conflict will turn nuclear Lavrov accused the West of risking a third world war in...
    Vladimir Putin's barbaric invasion of Ukraine has suffered another devastating blow after his force's death toll rose to 19,500 according to Kyiv estimates. Russia has only admitted 1,351 of its troops have died fighting in Ukraine since Putin invaded on February 24, a fraction of the figure estimated by Ukraine's armed forces. The catastrophic death toll comes as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky defended his criticism of NATO and the UN, saying he has had enough of diplomacy with Vladimir Putin. Zelensky told CBS 60 minutes on Sunday: 'When you are [working] at diplomacy, there are no results. All this is very bureaucratic. That's why the way I'm talking to them is absolutely justifiable. I don't have any more lives [to give]. I don't have any more emotions. 'I'm no longer interested in their diplomacy that leads to the destruction of my country. A lot of countries have changed their mind about Ukraine and about our people. But I think we've paid too high price for that.' It comes amid warnings from British intelligence chiefs that Putin's troops could use white phosphorous munitions in...

Ukrainian negotiator David Arakhamia announced the news in a Facebook post on Saturday, without providing further details.

    The US will close its embassy in Minsk, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Monday, following reports that Belarus may join Russia' invasion of Ukraine. The US government is also warning Belarus that it could risk further sanctions if it helps Vladimir Putin continue his assault. Last week President Joe Biden announced sanctions against 24 Belarusian entities and individuals for its role in Russia's attack. Blinken also gave non-essential staff at the US embassy in Moscow the green light to go home, citing 'security and safety issues' brought on by Putin's unprovoked attack on his neighbor.   When asked about the threat of Belarus joining the deadly fray, a White House official told CNN it was 'watching those events very carefully.'  'We’ve said to the extent Belarus continues to aid and abet Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, they will also face consequences,' the official said.  'We’ve already rolled out some of those measures. Those costs will continue to ratchet much higher.' DailyMail.com has reached out to the White House for comment.  The announcements came while Kyiv officials representing President Volodymyr Zelensky...
    A convoy of Belarusian tanks and troop carriers were seen queueing near the Ukrainian border today as officials from Moscow and Kyiv started peace talks.    Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelensky admitted he was not confident of a positive resolution, adding that he owed it to his people to at least try and engage.  He had been reticent to agree to talks in Belarus, a country used as a staging ground for the Russian invasion and which is now poised to join the war, offering instead to meet in Istanbul, Warsaw or Baku.  Ukraine has indicated it will request a ceasefire and full withdrawal of Russian forces but Moscow has remained tight lipped over what the negotiations, held at noon in Gomel in southeastern Belarus, could entail.  But columns of Belarusian military vehicles were spotted today heading east from the south western corner of the country in what appeared to be preparations to join the invasion of Ukraine.  Meanwhile observers have warned the talks could be a pretext for Moscow to ramp up its attacks on Ukraine if Kyiv's officials refuse Russian...
    Outspoken opposition to Putin's invasion of Ukraine is growing in Russia - and not just among the autocracy's civilian population.  Disquiet is also now spreading through some of the countries politicians with one Communist MP, Mikhail Matveev saying outright: 'I think that the war should be stopped immediately. Matveev is a member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) which sits in opposition to President Putin and the United Russia party.  'When I voted for the recognition of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR), I voted for peace, not for war,' Matveev said 'For Russia to become a shield, so that the Donbas was not bombed, but not for Kyiv to be bombed.' Ukraine regards both the DPR and LPR as terrorist organizations due to their loyalty to Russia. The Republics are located in the historical Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.  Communist MP Mikhail Matveev said: 'I think that the war should be stopped immediately.' President Zelensky , pictured, had warned that the Russians intend to take Kyiv overnight, urging his countrymen to resist the expected...

    A Ukrainian serviceman on the front line in Donetsk region on February 19, 2021. – Anatolii Stepanov/AFP The Kremlin yesterday warned the frozen war in eastern Ukraine was on the brink of dangerous escalation as Moscow and Kyiv blamed one another for a recent surge in violence. Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, on Thursday accused Kyiv’s forces of shelling in breach of the ceasefire agreement and entering areas where they were not meant to be. Ukraine accused pro-Russian forces, which are widely believed to be under Russian command, of shelling its troops to provoke retaliation. Mr Peskov said Russia, which officially denies deploying its own troops to the area, was using its influence to restrain pro-Russian forces and called on France and Germany to do the same for Ukraine “We also hope all our partners… will pay attention to the growing tension on the contact line and will use their influence to prevent this escalation from crossing a dangerous line,” Mr Peskov said. “A red line would be the resumption of full-scale hostilities,” he said. Russia and Ukraine have been...
