Russia creates pressure in ceasefire talks, says Ukraine leader

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Thursday that an escalation of tensions in Ukraine's eastern regions showed Russia was seeking to create a threatening atmosphere for ceasefire talks.
"Playing with muscles in the form of military exercises and possible provocations along the border is a traditional Russian affair," Zelenskiy said in a Telegram messenger.
"In this way, it (Russia) seeks to create an atmosphere of threat and, at the same time, of pressure during the ceasefire negotiations and for peace as our value."
