The Kremlin affirms that Western sanctions will never cause Russia to change its stance on the Ukraine issue.

`They are planning to force us to change our point of view. This is something that will never happen,` Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on March 1 when asked about the series of Western sanctions targeting Russia.

Mr. Peskov said that President Vladimir Putin had been informed about the first round of negotiations between Russian and Ukrainian officials in Belarus, but affirmed that it was too early to evaluate the results.

The Kremlin spokesman emphasized that Russia still recognizes Mr. Zelensky as Ukraine’s leader.

The Russian Ministry of Defense previously admitted that its soldiers were killed and injured in the special military operation in Ukraine, but refused to release details.

The Kremlin spokesman denied accusations that Russia attacked civilian targets, as well as using cluster bombs and thermobaric bombs.

After Russia launched its military campaign, the United States and European Union (EU) member countries froze the assets of Foreign Minister Lavrov and President Vladimir Putin, but it is unclear how this decision will affect them.

The West also removed some Russian banks from the SWIFT interbank messaging system, applying restrictions to prevent the Central Bank of Russia from `using international financial transactions to support the ruble`.
