Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba hit back at claims made Thursday by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, saying the leadership in Moscow “live in their own reality.”

Talks between Russia and Ukraine’s foreign ministers in Turkey on Thursday appear to have ended in failure, with no progress made on establishing a cease-fire or safe passage for civilians trying to flee the besieged city of Mariupol.

The discussions, between Lavrov and Kuleba, lasted just 1.5 hours.
