Peace talks are continuing today. 

Ukraine's President has acknowledged Ukraine may have to concede territory to Russia.

It comes as peace talks will resume between the two countries today.

President Zelenskyy says he wants to make a deal with Moscow over Donbas.

The region has been partly controlled by Russian-backed separatists since 2014.

Later today teams representing Russia and Ukraine will meet in Turkey.

Turkey's President Erdogan has urged Vladimir Putin to agree to a ceasefire.

Ukraine says that they are willing to discuss adopting a neutral status too.

But Volodymyr Zelensky says any deal would have to go to a referendum and be guaranteed by third parties.

Over the weekend, U.S. President Joe Biden says he wasn't calling for regime change in Russia.

He did make a comment that Russian President Vladimir Putin "cannot remain in power."

He's retracted comments he made during the speech in Warsaw on Saturday.
