Will there be peace soon between Russia and Ukraine?

It’s been over a month since Russia invaded one of its neighbouring countries – Ukraine. There has been conflict between the two countries since 2014 and despite Russia building up a lot of troops on the border, many people were still shocked when Russian President Vladimir Putin actually sent the Russian army to invade. The Ukrainian army has been fighting against the Russian army while the world has been urging Mr Putin to stop his attacks. Millions of people have had to leave their homes to look for safety. Recently, Russia has withdrawn some of its troops from the capital city, Kyiv, with some saying that there is a chance of peace talks between the two sides. Representatives from Russia and Ukraine have been speaking in Istanbul in Turkey for the first face-to-face talks in more than three weeks. Ukraine says its top priority from the talks is to work out a ceasefire which would end the war. However, it’s been reported that neither side is confident of making a breakthrough because they disagree on too many things.
