War in Ukraine could now
War in Ukraine could now: Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Ukraine did not want to pursue a preliminary peace deal with Russia back in March and that there was “no such desire” to pursue one now.
“There were well-known negotiations in Istanbul, when we reached an agreement, it only remained to initiate it,” he said, claiming that Russian forces had withdrawn from the area around Kyiv to “create these conditions” that would be ripe for a deal, Putin said in Tehran, Iran, on Tuesday.
Putin also said Russia is ready to “facilitate” grain exports from Ukraine if restrictions on Russian grain exports are relaxed.
When will the war in Ukraine end?
Back in Ukraine, Russian forces are conducting military operations in the area surrounding the city of Bakhmut — a city of strategic value to Russia — in Donetsk, to advance on the city and seize the Vuhlehirska thermal power plant, according to the latest report of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy watched from Kyiv as his wife delivered remarks to the U.S. Congress.
Olena Zelenska, the first wife of a foreign leader to speak in the U.S. Capitol, urged lawmakers to provide more U.S.-made arms to Ukraine.
Zelenska began her 15-minute address with a photo presentation of Ukrainian children killed by Russian missile strikes and shelling across the country.

“I’m asking for air defense systems for rockets not to kill,” Zelenska said before a backdrop of graphic and disturbing images from devastated Ukrainian streets.
“The First Lady noted the contribution of every American family, Congress, and President Joseph Biden to Ukraine’s ability to resist the enemy and protect the lives of millions of Ukrainian citizens,” according to a statement from Zelenskyy’s office.
All 30 NATO members must approve a country’s bid for it to be accepted into the alliance.
Both Finland and Sweden already meet many of the requirements to be NATO members. Some of the requirements include having a functioning democratic political system, a willingness to provide economic transparency, and the ability to make military contributions to alliance missions.
In May, both nations began the formal process of applying to the military alliance.

Ukraine’s first lady tells NBC News that her son wants to be a soldier when he grows up
Ukraine’s first lady told NBC News that her son wants to be a soldier when he grows up, during a visit to the U.S. as the country approaches 150 days of war with Russia.
“He wants to be a soldier,” Olena Zelenska told NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander in an exclusive interview.
“What does that make you think as a mom?” asked Alexander in a follow-up question.
“You know before the war my son used to go to the folk dance ensemble. He played piano, he learned English. He of course did sports club,” Zelenska said.
“Now I can’t bring him back to doing arts and humanities. The only thing he wants to do is martial arts and how to use a rifle and that’s what I want to ensure is that the childhood of my son is given back to him and that he enjoys his life to the fullest,” she added.
