Moscow imposes a dialogue on Kyiv, taking into account “the realities of the current moment.” Vladimir Zelensky believes that Russia is bluffing, demonstrating a false desire for peace.
Russia again accused Ukraine of unwillingness to conduct peace talks. Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov at a briefing in Moscow announced the continuation of hostilities, RIA Novosti writes.
“From our point of view, the “special military operation” in Ukraine can be completed after achieving its goals. Or end with peace talks, which is also possible. But peace talks, as we know, are impossible due to the position taken by the Ukrainian side,” Peskov told reporters.
Interfax clarifies that Peskov responded to a request from journalists to comment on the statement by US President Joe Biden on ending the war in Ukraine after the withdrawal of Russian troops.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that Russia does not record changes in Kyiv's position in negotiations with Moscow.
“Kyiv does not want negotiations, and the “special military operation” continues,” he said.
Negotiations with Russia – Kyiv's position
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with CNN explained why Ukraine is not negotiating with Russia. According to him, the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the desire for peace are untrue.
“Everyone should understand that only the Kremlin and only one person (Putin) are not tired of the war. Maybe he is tired of living from -for age, but definitely not from the war. Now this man and the Russian military-political command need a pause,” the president noted.
Russia, as Zelensky said, still does not want to end the war, but the world too early to feel tired from it.
“You can't wish for peace just in words – words are not enough. To stop the war, withdraw the troops, stop killing people. They must compensate for the harm done and the criminals must sit down. Words are too few,” he continued.
Zelensky reminded how the authorities of the Russian Federation did not pay attention to warnings about the inadmissibility of holding pseudo-referendums in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. Zelensky said that negotiations would become impossible after that.
The President's Office recently called 3 conditions for negotiating with Moscow: the withdrawal of troops to internationally recognized borders, stopping the shelling of Ukraine and developing a plan to eliminate the consequences of the war.
Ministry speaker Maria Zakharova spoke on November 2 about Moscow's expectations of signals from Kyiv to return to the negotiation process. The Russian Federation is not in a position to dictate terms, they answered in Ukraine.
The American publication Politico wrote about the possible influence of the White House on Zelensky's position in negotiations with Putin. The Ukrainian leader, according to journalists, was given the message of readiness to end the war peacefully.
