Russia's top officials have approached the West to help end the Ukraine war, according to a report. A top Kremlin official expressed that the Russian government is in a panic over the worsening economy following the imposition of sanctions. The official underlined that the establishment is eager to end the Ukraine war, which has resulted in the death of tens of thousands of Russian soldiers.
Astonishing claims about the move were made in a report circulated to Western intelligence agencies. It is believed senior officers and officials close to Putin are alarmed by biting Western sanctions and the failing economy caused by war, according to Mirror.
