Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to end the war in Ukraine as soon as possible.

APA reports that in an interview with PBS, Erdogan spoke about the importance of Ukraine's approach to peace with Russia.

"I realized that they really want the war to end soon.

The evils of the course of war are many.

Now, for example, an agreement has been reached on the mutual exchange of 200 prisoners.

This is a very good development.

These were good news, but Ukraine should have the same approach as Russia in stopping the war, and we should be determined to end this war," the Turkish head of state stressed.
