NATO says possible negotiations would take into account Ukraine’s strength on the battlefield and for this reason, allies should provide more military support.
Russia is not considering a second round of mobilisations, the Kremlin says.
Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has appealed to Nato members to guarantee the protection of his country’s nuclear power plants from “Russian sabotage”.
In a video address to Nato’s parliamentary assembly in Madrid, he said:
“All our nations are interested in not having any dangerous incidents at our nuclear facilities.
We all need guaranteed protection from Russian sabotage at nuclear facilities.”
Zelenskiy also called for new EU sanctions against Russia over what he said was its “policy of genocide” as its forces bomb civilian infrastructure.

Ukraine narrowly escaped disaster during fighting at the weekend that rocked Europe’s largest atomic power plant with a barrage of shells, some falling near reactors and damaging a radioactive waste storage building, the U.N. nuclear watchdog said.
Russia and Ukraine on Monday traded blame for at least a dozen explosions at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station, which has been under Russian control since soon after it invaded the country on Feb. 24 but is across the Dnipro river from areas controlled by Kyiv.
