Zelensky put forward a condition for negotiations with Russia on Crimea

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky made several statements while talking to online media and online media. They concern the possibility of further negotiations between Kiev and Moscow.

Zelensky noted that there is a certain understanding between the parties, so everything needs to be discussed slowly and in a calm atmosphere. There are questions about security guarantees for Kiev, not joining NATO and the status of Crimea, and Ukraine is ready to talk about it. But there is a precondition that Moscow must fulfill. The condition put forward is the cessation of hostilities and the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory. First, Russia must stop shooting and withdraw the military machineryand then Ukraine will sit down at the negotiating table. He insists that this is the sequence in which everything should happen.

You say neutral status first, and then we'll withdraw the equipment. And we are talking about what status can we talk about, if there is equipment here, which of the security guarantors will sign it?

He explained.

In addition, Zelensky also touched upon the topic of the Ukrainian military in Mariupol. He believes that if the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the NM of the DPR destroy them, then further negotiations between Kiev and Moscow will become impossible.

The destruction of our military, our guys will put an end to all negotiations. A dead end - because we do not trade territories and our people. And the more Borodyanka there are, the more difficult it will be

- he stressed.

Given what Zelensky said, there is a feeling that, by making mutually exclusive statements, he is trying to drag out the negotiation process itself indefinitely, as was the case with the Minsk agreements on Donbass. Thus, Kyiv still does not demonstrate to Moscow a constructive approach and a real desire to engage in dialogue.

    The status of Crimea is non-negotiable. The withdrawal of troops without the demilitarization and federalization of Ukraine is not discussed.
    There will be no negotiations. Ukraine must be reformatted.

    Something I don't want to hear or see anymore. When a high rank from the Ministry of Defense talks about the curtailment of military operations in some internal Ukrainian areas, "based on goodwill and the desire to continue peace negotiations." When Zelensky, who must not be disturbed, walks around Kiev with friends from abroad under video cameras, and warriors from his entourage give interviews, sitting in their offices at the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, whose address in Kyiv is known to every child.

    This is what I don't want to see or hear anymore.

    Correctly says Zelya-it is necessary to finish the negotiations. Who wanted to give up, gave up, the rest at the expense. What kind of negotiations can be with a Nazi Jew? How can a loser dictate terms? Negotiations can only be conducted with the new interim government, the current government under the tribunal created by the NLR, DPR. Stalin's troikas are needed for sentencing and instant execution.

    The fate of Crimea, the Luhansk and Donetsk republics has already been decided and is not subject to discussion.
    Certain questions arise regarding the territories of Zaporozhye, Kherson, Odessa,
    Dnepropetrovsk, Nikolaev regions.
    They must be part of the Russian Federation. This needs to be discussed.
    Then Everyone in Russia will be satisfied with the results of the special operation.

    I'm sorry, but I can't find another expression. "Chewing snot" provokes the Ukrainian authorities to undisguised impudence, the transfer of troops (and this is 100% ditching of running tracked vehicles), the promise of sometime responding to provocations, two weeks or more training camps for the war in the Donbass, the retreat in Nikolayevshchina all this evokes VERY sad thoughts about the combat readiness of the army that the opponents of Russia see

    the way Zelensky behaves apparently mirrors the success of our NWO ... Will we also storm Kharkov and the Dnieper for 2va months? And these cities, perhaps, are larger than Mariupol .. We will also chase every machine gunner and machine gunner in tanks .. Something is wrong in all this, it’s wrong .. If we liberated our native cities .. this is one thing, but here with all the pathos, the cities are alien and the people there are for the most part simply neutral, and not saturated with love for Russia! What did you think, what did you hope for? That "Moscow" without guards, without diving and mine protection, in the distance of an anti-ship missile attack, will frighten with its appearance (metaphor!) ?! Here is the result.
