WASHINGTON, March 28 — Russian President Vladimir Putin does not appear ready to make compromises to end the war in Ukraine, a senior US official said today as Ukraine and Russia were preparing for their first face-to-face peace talks in more than two weeks.

“Everything I have seen is he is not willing to compromise at this point,” the senior US State Department official told Reuters on condition of anonymity after Ukraine’s president sketched out a potential way to end the crisis over the weekend. — Reuters
