Peskov told Reuters that Russia had told Ukraine it was ready to stop military operations “at a moment” if Kyiv fulfilled its conditions.
This was by far the most clear statement by Russia about the conditions it wants to impose on Ukraine to stop what it calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine, which actually began 12 days ago.
On the issue of neutrality, Peskov said that Ukraine “must amend the constitution, rejecting any attempt to join any bloc.”
The Kremlin spokesman stressed that Russia does not seek to make any other territorial claims against Ukraine.
– We are really in the process of ending the disarmament of Ukraine. We will finish it. But the most important thing is that Ukraine should stop its military activities. They should stop military activities, after which no one will shoot them – he said.
Amendments must be made to the Constitution, according to which Ukraine rejects all attempts to join any bloc. We also said that they should recognize Crimea as Russian territory and that they should recognize Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states. And this is the end of it. Peskov told Reuters it would be over in a moment.
The presentation of Russia’s demands came as the Russian and Ukrainian delegations prepared to meet on Monday in the third round of talks to end Russia’s war with Ukraine, the invasion that began on February 24 and which has caused and erupted Europe’s largest refugee crisis since World War II. Off the wrath around the world.
Will Russia end the war? Ukraine’s statements
In an interview with the American Fox News channel, the head of the Ukrainian delegation, David Arachmia, said that Ukraine would never agree to recognize the independence of the breakaway republics or the annexation of Crimea by Russia. However, an important announcement was made in the conversation that Ukraine may give up its ambition to join NATO if it receives other security guarantees from Western countries.
“I can talk to Russia about anything, but we will never accept territorial concessions,” Arachmia says. – He added that it is not about politicians, but about Ukrainians who will not allow this to happen.
Arachmia admitted that Ukraine could negotiate not to join NATO. However, the politician sees Kyiv as open to resigning from its efforts to join NATO. As he says, Ukraine does not want to be there for membership just to feel safe on the international stage.
Today, NATO made it clear that it is not possible to start talks on our accession to the Alliance in such a short time. It won’t be like that in the next five or ten years. That is why we are ready to talk about adopting some model of staying outside NATO, but with security guarantees issued to us by the United States, Great Britain, China, or even Germany or France. One of Volodymyr Zelensky’s main partners made it clear that we are open to discussing such matters in a wider group, not only in bilateral talks with Russia, but also with other partners.
