Russian President Vladimir Putin has pledged to order a ceasefire in Ukraine and start negotiations if Kyiv withdraws troops from the four regions annexed by Moscow in 2022 and abandons its North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership aspirations. "We will do it immediately," Putin said at the Russian Foreign Ministry in Moscow. This proposal comes as G7 leaders meet in Italy and Switzerland prepares for a peace summit on Ukraine.
