The Kremlin tamped down expectations Monday that face-to-face talks with Ukraine negotiators scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday would result in a deal to end Russia's deadly, destructive invasion.

"Regrettably, we cannot say there have been any significant achievements or breakthroughs so far," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday. But he said the face-to-face meeting in Turkey could allow for "more focused, tighter and meaningful" talks.

The talks come as the mayor of Mariupol called for evacuation of the remaining 160,000 residents, saying the city is virtually without food, water, power and other supplies.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rejected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's latest appeal for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin, saying it would be counterproductive until Ukraine and Russia are close to agreeing on key issues.

We blow you up and invade you, killing many. . .and you must give us what we want even though we're losing.

1. Sure, negotiate with a psychopath/sociopath.

How in the hell do you negotiate with someone that has proven time and time again that they cannot be trusted.

5. This is the "sausage-making" stage

Take nothing that either side says "publicly" as "gospel".

6. Putin's position in the negotiations:

"We are open to any kind of complete surrender the Ukrainians want to propose--written or oral, either one is perfectly acceptable to Russia."

Some might be less than shocked at the Ukrainians' rejection of his proposal.............
