It’s about it

  • In September, Zelensky decided by decree that no negotiations could be conducted with Russia.

  • Now he has changed his mind.

  • The international community should force Russia into real peace talks.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi turned peace talks with Russia. After the meeting with his Russian colleague Vladimir Putin in September excluded by decree on Monday night, Zelenskyy called on the international community to force Russia into genuine peace talks.

Russia must withdraw from Ukraine before peace talks

The assumption is that Russia withdraws from occupied Ukrainian territories, pays war damages and prosecutes war crimes. Zelenskyy said his government has repeatedly proposed peace talks, but Russia has responded with terrorist attacks, shelling or blackmail.

Zelenskyi’s adviser Mykhaylo Podoliak emphasized that Ukraine has never refused negotiations – if Russia withdraws its troops. Putin is obviously not ready for that. On Monday, Podoljak announced on Twitter that Ukraine would negotiate with “the next leader of Russia.”

On Tuesday, Podoljak was also critical of the negotiations and called the diplomatic terms used by Russia when talking about peace negotiations “playful”.

Russia does not impose any conditions, except for “good will” from Ukraine

Russia also signaled a willingness to negotiate on Tuesday: Russia did not set any conditions for talks to begin, “except for the main condition that Ukraine show good will,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Rudenko said.

“We have always declared readiness for such negotiations, which were interrupted through no fault of ours,” says Rudenko, recalling the decree by which Zelensky banned negotiations with Russia.

The US demanded that Kyiv show a willingness to act

On the weekend “The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, that the Biden administration is secretly encouraging the Ukrainian leadership to signal its willingness to deal with Russia and its public refusal to agree engage in direct conversationsgive up.

The US official also warned: “For some of our partners, fatigue with Ukraine is a real problem.” In the United States, polls show that Republican support for continued funding of the Ukrainian military is falling from current levels. According to the Washington Post, this could indicate that the White House could face backlash after Tuesday’s midterm elections if it tries to continue its aid program at the same scale.
