kyiv accuses Russia of making peace negotiations conditional on Ukraine’s surrender


The Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dimitro Kuleba, has accused Russia of not advocating a “serious” negotiating process for peace, since all Moscow’s proposals are subject to Ukraine’s surrender.

“When Russia returns to the negotiation rhetoric, it always adds that they are ready to conduct negotiations only on Ukraine’s compliance with Russia’s ultimatum,” Kuleba lamented.

Thus, the representative of the Ukrainian diplomacy considers that there can be no “serious negotiations with Russia” and has asserted that “no one believes Moscow’s trick anymore” of pretending that it is interested in dialogue, according to Ukrinform.

Previously, the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, already pointed out that any negotiation process with Russia could only be possible once Moscow completely liberated all the territories that it has been taking since the beginning of the war.

Talks between Russia and Ukraine have been practically non-existent since the beginning of the conflict, at the end of February, except for the first few weeks, when Belarus did host a series of meetings between representatives of both sides.
