"Concessions are a must and if we reach a concession whereby Jerusalem will be - Ramallah will be the capital of Palestine, to end the war and so no one else dies, then we would go for it". Especially given the economic constraints from Western sanctions that Russian Federation faces, Putin is simply not in position to offer anything to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that would induce him to accept a Palestinian state, much less East Jerusalem as its capital.
While Israel took over East Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 war and declared the whole city as its eternal indivisible capital in 1980, it has not been recognized by the worldwide community.
