Ukraine Peace: from Maria Zakharova
Apparently, from reading this, the telephone call with China / Ukraine happened or perhaps it was a preparatory call. I cannot see that XJP will actually speak to Zelensky.
The answer of the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry M.V. Zakharova to the media question in connection with the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine
❓ After a telephone conversation with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang on March 16, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine D. Kuleba wrote on Twitter that during the conversation he “emphasized the importance of Zalensky’s “peace formula” for stopping aggression and restoring a just peace in Ukraine.” How could you comment on this thesis?
💬 The so-called “peace formula” of Zelensky has nothing to do with the world. This is nothing more than a set of ultimatum demands on our country that are divorced from reality . Among them, the withdrawal of troops from the Russian regions – the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson region and even the Crimea, the payment of reparations and the surrender to international tribunals. The purpose of the Ukrainian “formula” is to achieve the capitulation of Russia with the help of the West.
It is noteworthy that neither in this “tweet” nor in any other “post” D. Kuleba proposes to sit down at the negotiating table . Let me remind you that their (negotiations – added for understanding) holding in Ukraine is prohibited by law – by Zelensky’s decree of September 30, 2022.
☝️ For our part, we have repeatedly stated that we are open to really serious proposals from the West and Ukraine for a political and diplomatic solution to the crisis, but the language of ultimatums is unacceptable for us .
❗️ To achieve sustainable peace, it is necessary to achieve
• termination of supplies to Ukraine of weapons and mercenaries,
• completion of hostilities,
• return of Ukraine to a neutral non-bloc status,
• international recognition of the new territorial realities that have emerged as a result of the realization of the right of peoples to self-determination.
The demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine must be carried out, all threats emanating from its territory must be eliminated, its non-nuclear status and guarantees for the observance of the rights of the Russian-speaking population and national minorities must be secured.
An integral part should be the abolition of all illegal sanctions and lawsuits against Russia in international courts.
