Peace talks between leaders of Russia and Ukraine have ended without an agreement to hold a ceasefire being reached.

Leaders met in Belarus, near the Ukrainian border, to discuss the conflict that has engulfed Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the president has signed an application for his country to join the European Union, in a bid to solidify his country’s bond with the West.

Mr Zelensky has posted photos of himself signing the application, and his office says the paperwork is on its way to Brussels, where the 27-nation EU has its headquarters.
