As President Volodymyr Zelenskyy appealed directly to American lawmakers on Wednesday to impose a no-fly zone over his country to stop Russia’s devastating airstrikes, Russian artillery continued pummeling Ukraine’s capital Kyiv and other cities. Zelenskyy knows the U.S. and its NATO allies are extremely reluctant to take any step that could escalate the war, and they have already made it clear a no-fly zone is unlikely.

Even without cover from above, however, Ukrainian forces have managed to stall Russian ground troops’ advance on Kyiv and other major cities, and rhetoric coming from both Kyiv and Moscow appears to suggest that some progress could finally be made after multiple rounds of tense, direct negotiations.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Wednesday that a neutral military status for Ukraine was being “seriously discussed” in the talks between Ukrainian and Russian delegations, which he described as “business-like.”

“Meetings continue,” Zelenskyy said before addressing the U.S. Congress. He stressed that the talks still needed more time, but said, “as I am told, the [Russian] positions in the negotiations sound more realistic.”
