Round of negotiations between Moscow and Kiev Washington imposes new sanctions and warns Russian soldiers  Russia announced that the new round of negotiations with Ukraine will take place Thursday morning, while Washington imposed new sanctions on Russia and Belarus, and asked Russian soldiers to leave Ukraine.  Russia announced Wednesday that a new round of negotiations with Ukraine will take place Thursday morning in the Belarusian border city of Brest, while Washington imposed new sanctions on Russia and Belarus.  This came according to what the head of the Russian delegation, Vladimir Medinsky, adviser to President Vladimir Putin, said in a press statement from the forested Belovesk region, in the border city of Brest with Ukraine and Poland.  Medinsky noted that they reached a mutual understanding at the negotiating table with the Ukrainians on some proposals in the first round, adding, "But the basics were waited, and the Ukrainian side requested time to consult with Kyiv."  He explained that the Russian side understands the Ukrainian delegation's transportation problem, and that the Belarusian special forces will ensure security on its side, stressing that the Russian military forces will provide a safe corridor for the Ukrainian delegation's movement inside his country.  On the other hand, Washington's delegate to the United Nations, Linda Thomas Greenfield, called on Russian soldiers who are fighting in Ukraine to lay down their weapons, saying: "Your leaders are lying to you."  This came in her speech at the extraordinary meeting of the United Nations General Assembly at the headquarters of the International Organization in New York.  "We call on Russia to stop its unjustified and unreasonable war against Ukraine, and to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of this country," the US ambassador said.  She added: "This is an extraordinary moment, and if the United Nations has any goal, it is to prevent, manage and stop war."  And she continued, "I say to the Russian soldiers who were sent to the front lines in an unjust and unnecessary war: Your leaders are lying to you, do not commit war crimes."  Following the session, the United Nations General Assembly, by an overwhelming majority, adopted a resolution calling on Russia to immediately withdraw its military forces from Ukraine.  Later, the White House announced, on Wednesday, the imposition of additional sanctions on Russia and Belarus, in response to the invasion of Ukraine.  "The United States will take measures to hold Belarus accountable for supporting Putin's invasion of Ukraine, to weaken Russia's defense sector and military power for years to come, as well as to target Russia's most important source of wealth and prevent Russian airlines from entering U.S. airspace," the White House added.  And last Monday, talks were launched between the Kyiv negotiating delegation and its Russian counterpart, in the Gomel border area between Ukraine and Belarus, with the aim of reaching a ceasefire.  At the dawn of last February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of "tough" economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
