kremlin is ready to wait for new Ukraine's leadership or change in Zelensky's position
For negotiations with Ukraine, russia will have to wait for a change in the position of the current leader of the country, Volodymyr Zelensky, or for a new president
It was announced by the spokesman of the President of the russian federation, Dmytriy Peskov, RIA Novosti quotes.
"Well, what can we say now? Now we will wait for a change in the positions of the current president.
Or we will wait for the future president of Ukraine, who will change his positions in favor of the Ukrainian people," Peskov emphasized.
This is how the kremlin speaker commented on the decree of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.
With this decree, the Head of the country implemented the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of September 30 on the impossibility of holding negotiations with the president of russia, vladimir putin.
As well as the movement of Ukraine toward NATO membership and the strengthening of defense capabilities.
Why is this decision so important?
Thus, the kremlin makes it clear that they are not going to end the war.
While Volodymyr Zelensky, before the new stage of russia's attempted annexation of Ukrainian territories, stated that the withdrawal of russian troops from Ukraine is a condition for negotiations with the russian federation.
On September 30, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine is ready for negotiations with russia, not with putin, but with another russian president of the russian federation.
On that day, the National Security Council stated the impossibility of holding negotiations with putin, and Zelensky approved this by decree.
Before that, moscow repeatedly accused Kyiv of withdrawing from the negotiations, but in reality, it did not show readiness for compromises.
It was not going to de-occupy the captured territories and issued ultimatums, seeking Ukraine's surrender.
Both sides have made it clear since May that negotiations will not help stop the war, and have sought to gain first-hand advantage on the battlefield.
