Kyiv announces conditions for peace meetings with Moscow
(MENAFN) Peace talks with Moscow will only make sense when Russia conquers the battlefield, in agreement with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba.
In a meeting with Forbes Ukraine televised on Monday, Kuleba described Russia’s “aggressive behavior” as a cause for not holding peace meetings, arguing that any discussion “is directly related to the situation at the front.”
“I tell all partners one simple thing: ‘Russia should sit down at the negotiating table after defeat on the battlefield. Otherwise, it will again be the language of ultimatums,” Kuleba said.
He also stressed that leader Zelensky does not rule out “the possibility of negotiations” but is certain that “there is no reason” to discuss at this time.
“He communicated it very clearly to the leaders of the countries that had hinted at negotiations. These leaders also stopped talking about it,” Kuleba added.
Last month, Ukraine’s high representative, David Arakhamia, proposed that Kyiv consider that it could reach a “favorable position” by next month when it conducts “counter-offensive operations in certain areas “.
