Ukraine-Russia Peace Is as Elusive as Ever. But in 2022 They Were Talking.
Representatives from the warring nations held peace talks in the early weeks of the Russian invasion. They fizzled. Documents from those talks show why any new ones will face major obstacles.

Ukraine didn't reject Russian sovereignty over the Donbass. It rejected changing its constitution to allow the oblasts to hold referendums on their autonomy (not unlike what the US imposed in Iraq with Kurdistan). The key to Ukraine's rejection of the Minsk treaties is the refusal to recognize the legitimacy of the Donbass partisans who comprise the other party to the agreement.

Russia isn't likely to achieve military control over those four regions till the end of 2025 according to Putin's update on the SMO.
