Erdoğan to Discuss with Putin and Zelenskyy Humanitarian Corridor.

Chief Ombudsman of Türkiye Şeref Malkoç on Thursday announced the telephone conversation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan with Ukrainian and Russian Presidents Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Vladimir Putin.

The Turkish ombudsman has shared with reporters that he had asked Erdoğan to back the idea of setting up a permanent "humanitarian corridor" in war zone. He said the Turkish president welcomed the idea.

"If we can succeed after such a meeting, if we can succeed in the mutual exchange of injured in Russia or Ukraine, the exchange of children or women, it will be one of the most significant matters of this meeting," added Malkoç, referring to the meeting of Ukrainian and Russian ombudsmen in Ankara, reports the media outlet Milliyet.

He added that the administration of the Turkish president has already started the necessary work to set up a humanitarian corridor.

"I would like to announce that our president will have a telephone conversation with Mr. Zelenskyy and Mr. Putin today or tomorrow on this matter. After then, it's up to us. We will coordinate together," the Turkish ombudsman said.

Erdoğan said that Türkiye backs a humanitarian corridor for those injured in Russia's war against Ukraine.

As reported, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Turkey, has expressed support for the "peace formula" proposed by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine, at the G20 summit in November 2022.

After visiting Bucha, Mayor of Budapest explains why Ukraine should win war.

After a visit to Ukraine with three European colleagues, Gergely Karácsony, the Mayor of Budapest, recorded a video address in which he explains why Ukraine's victory in the war is important.

"If someone has lost their moral compass and cannot see the difference between a victim and an aggressor, if someone has forgotten what Hungaria people experienced in the 20th century, I advise you to come here, to Bucha and Kyiv, and look into the eyes of those who survived. Then it will be clear that it is not just a fight between two countries in this war, but an evil force is trying to occupy another country," he emphasised.

Gergely Karácsony said that Hungary not only has a moral obligation to support Ukrainians, but it is also about its own interests, so that they do not have to think about which country will be the next victim of aggression.

"This war must end only with the victory of Ukraine and conclusions from such terrible war crimes as, for example, in Bucha," the Mayor of Budapest emphasised.
