Vladimir Putin claimed today that he is willing to hold talks with Ukraine - as an ex Russian spy and military commander has slammed the 'stupid stubbornness' of his war leaders and said any hope for success in the Donbas is 'ephemeral'.
In an interview with state television about the war in Ukraine, excerpts of which were released today, Putin said that Russia is 'prepared to negotiate about acceptable solutions'.
Contrary to the Russian president's comments, the Kremlin has been ramping up its attacks on the south and east of the country over the Christmas period - a clear sign that peace isn't imminent.
