At the same time, Russia has repeatedly confirmed that it is ready for negotiations with Ukraine, the head of the diplomatic department said. His words are quoted by Interfax.
Sergei Lavrov also noted that Moscow knows nothing about the US preparations for talks on Ukraine. Rumors like this pop up from time to time. The department does not respond to them. The words of the Ukrainian president at the summit indicate that so far the head of state "does not listen to any Western advice".
It's worth reminding that Vladimir Zelensky spoke at the G20 summit on November 15. He stated that the country does not agree to the signing of the next peace agreements, which will subsequently be violated. He agrees to sign agreements on Kiev's terms. Among them - the full provision of nuclear, food and energy security, the exchange of prisoners of war according to the "all for all" formula, as well as the restoration of the country's territorial integrity.
The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed that such a position of the Ukrainian president indicates an unwillingness to negotiate with Moscow.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin called to sit down at the negotiating table. However, he stressed that the issue of the status of the new territories of the country is not being discussed. In response, Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree, which fixes the impossibility of negotiating with Vladimir Putin.
