A Kremlin spokesman said: “Our delegation is ready to continue the talks. The Moscow delegation expects the talks to resume on Wednesday evening.”
He said Vladimir Putinsky, an aide to President Vladimir Putin, was Russia’s top negotiator on Ukraine, but did not say where the next round of talks would take place.
The first round of talks between the Russian and Ukrainian delegations took place on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, but to no avail.
After a series of Moscow airstrikes in the former Soviet state, Russian forces entered Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, sparking street clashes in Kharkiv.
Hundreds of civilians have been reported killed since Russian troops entered Ukraine last week to pursue Vladimir Putin’s mission to overthrow Vladimir Zelensky’s pro-Western government.
Russian forces have carried out large-scale bombings and sieges of urban centers, but Ukraine insists that no major cities have been captured by Russia.
The Ukrainian military said in a statement on the social networking site Telegram that Russian air forces had landed in Kharkiv and attacked a local hospital.
Russia has targeted a residential building in the city, killing eight people, comparing it to the massacre of civilians in Sarajevo in the 1990s and condemned it, while President Vladimir Zelensky called it a war crime.
According to an adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, a fire broke out in the barracks of a flight school in Kharkiv after an airstrike.
A statement from the Telegram quoted him as saying that there was virtually no area left in Kharkiv where no ammunition had yet been planted.

“We are still in Ukraine, we are still strong,” Kharsoon’s mayor said in a Facebook post.
Apparently denying the Russian military’s claims, he said there was a need to find a way to collect the bodies and restore the damaged electricity, gas, water and heating systems.
However, he said that completing these tasks in these circumstances is like a miracle.
Belarus fears attack
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry also said it feared an attack from Belarus on its northern border. Deployed in nearby areas.
According to the Belta News Agency, Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko said he had ordered more troops to be sent to the south of the country.
However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Belarus’s forces.
Mariupol, a town on the Sea of Azov in southern Ukraine, has been without power since the Russian bombing.
Russia’s Defense Ministry says that in a significant victory for Moscow, its troops have established contact with pro-Moscow rebel forces from eastern Ukraine along the shores of the Sea of Azov.
