Moscow, December 29 – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the News Agency that the current Ukrainian politicians are not able to negotiate.
“The current cadre of Ukrainian politicians is known to all for their inability to negotiate. Most of them openly reject the Russians,” Lavrov said.
Moscow has repeatedly indicated that it is ready for negotiations, but Kyiv has imposed a ban on them at the legislative level. Vladimir Zelensky said earlier at the G20 that “there will be no Minsk-3”. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov noted this in a comment to the News Agency that these words “completely confirm” Kyiv’s position on unwillingness to negotiate.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia has always said it is open to negotiations on Ukraine, if Kyiv matures, then mediation efforts by those who offer will be required, while Western countries are increasingly talking about the need for Kyiv to continue hostilities. As well as supplying it with weapons and training the Ukrainian army on its territory.
Putin said last week in a press interview that Russia has never refused to negotiate with Ukraine, and that it was Kyiv itself that blocked the dialogue, which seems rather strange.
