According to the Foreign Minister, the Russian side is ready to listen to serious proposals from the West, but they have not yet been received.

the party is not going to conduct any negotiations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and there have been no such proposals from the West. The press conference of the Foreign Minister was broadcast on the channel of the Russian Ministry.

According to Lavrov, the Ukrainian leader puts forward “absurd peace initiatives” to resolve the conflict, so there can be no talk of negotiations with him on his initiatives. In addition, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that, according to Ukrainian legislation, it is forbidden to negotiate with the Russian government.

“All this Western chatter that “they are ready, but here we are …” is all from the evil one We will be ready to respond to any serious proposals, but we do not see serious proposals yet,” the minister said.

The head of Russian diplomacy also noted that all Western statements that there are no negotiations on Ukraine without Ukraine maybe they are “nonsense”, since the leaders of Western countries themselves allegedly forbade Zelensky to negotiate in March last year.

Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said on January 17 that Russia wants to sit at the negotiating table only on its own terms. The readiness of the Kremlin's diplomatic dialogue is due to the fact that the Russian authorities want to present themselves as winners to the Russians.
