Podolyaka explained why the US and Ukraine started talking about negotiations with Russia

A few days ago in the West, and now in Kyiv, they started talking about negotiations with Moscow. On November 8, Russian expert Yuri Podolyaka drew his attention to this, who assessed what was happening.

He decided to study how the situation around Ukraine would develop in terms of a political settlement. The expert noted that the United States was the first to actively talk about a dialogue with Moscow, after which the Ukrainian side, represented by President Volodymyr Zelensky and representatives of his office, began to agree to this to some extent, putting forward certain conditions.

Return to the 1991 borders, compensation for losses, punishment of war criminals and security guarantees for the future

- Podolyaka listed the demands of Kyiv.

He explained that such conditions are absolutely unacceptable for Russia. However, the very fact of this indicates a radical reversal in the position of the Ukrainian side after the previous uncompromising statements that there can be no negotiations with the Russian Federation and there is nothing to talk about with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Obviously, this statement was the result of an external policy Americans who set everyone up for peace negotiations, because for them today this is the most profitable option

He pointed out.

Podolyaka added that Zelensky should not be considered an independent political player, as he was and remains a puppet. This is an actor (jester) who plays his role and repeats after his masters from Washington and London everything that they write to him. All those words that he spoke about the unwillingness to communicate with the Kremlin are raising the stakes before possible negotiations. Initially, it was clear that he would agree to more lenient requirements.

In fact, political negotiations always go like this. First, they raise the bar, and then they allegedly begin to give up their positions, demanding mutual concessions from the opponent. It is clear that such a cheap trick can fool anyone, but not Sergei Lavrov. And here the most important point is how ready Moscow is for these negotiations. My personal opinion is that Kyiv does not need any peace, it needs to survive the most difficult winter, like Europe, after which the hatchet of war will be dug back

He explained.

The expert emphasized that the fate of Kherson is now a very important moment, and perhaps the key one. Kyiv and Washington want to start negotiations from a position of strength, and for this they need to establish control over the city. But in no case should Moscow leave Kherson, since it is a foothold on the Right Bank and a "springboard" to Krivoy Rog, Nikolaev and Odessa. Thus, Kherson is a strategic point of great importance for both sides. Therefore, in the coming days, the culmination of the struggle for this city is possible.

    So are their hopes futile? Really any "gestures of good will", "247 red line", "we are obliged to sell gas and oil further", "well, we were sent there, so we will have to agree to continue the grain deal" and so on and so forth, were not enough to to stop believing that our president won't say "Ok, why not?"

    Hasn't he made so many gestures of goodwill for foreigners and not a single gesture of goodwill for his own military and fellow citizens? To what extent is it necessary not to perceive reality in order not to refuse even the slightest trust in such an unreliable person?

    He probably follows the ideology - beat your own so that strangers are afraid. But in the modern world, this looks like a buffoon.

    And this is not such a bad scenario, I am more inclined to believe that this chess player and gentleman believes in fairy tales and unicorns, believes in goodness in the whole world and in honest and decent people. That would be a catastrophe worse than Gorbachev's.

    Russia is showing weakness everywhere so far.
    Here Zelensky made a knight's move - he rides the G20.
    Is it really now that Putin will refuse to go because of this, or will Lavrov come up with various reasons .....?
    The whole West does not want to see Putin there - will he bend or go?

      I saw the info: Ze ordered to capture Kherson until the 15th, then V. V would remain at home.
      The same: China, Indonesia are waiting for someone to take? If they kick us out of Kherson, Xi will be the first to hint that Putin is not needed on the g20. For now, it's questionable.
      It is not yet known how the elections in Washington will be held? If the "elephant" tramples the "donkey", grandfather will not talk much about Putin's presence

    An expert whose predictions do not come true)))
    It is the Russian side who is talking about negotiations, and Putin and Lavrov have repeatedly mentioned negotiations.

    Podolyak 100 pounds right. If they decide in Washington: hare to fight. Raze Ze disobeys? This will not happen in real life.
    Remember, half a month ago, Ze was going to "drink tea in the Kremlin", and now he doesn't want to judge V.V.? They were ready, Mask "to dance without salt and without onions" (c), and now the next step: to postpone the status of Crimea for 10 years? There were already such hints in June.

    Not yet, but they show him that he is a servant, and then ... Who knows, maybe Ze will "die" (Z says that he will be removed)

      "Russia started in earnest", cuts down the energy sector, the industry of Ukraine, new UAV means have gone in, the command has become better, it doesn't gouge in the forehead, etc. - everything indicates that the Ukronazis will no longer win. So the curators of the United States went on the path of agreements, before it's too late, until the statehood of Ukraine collapsed. Now we have nothing to rush with agreements, and then finish off Ukraine into collapse and collapse, so that further for the Ukronazis there will be problems with restoring the potential for a new revenge on Russia ...

    In addition to the previous conditions (a return to the borders of 1991), a condition appeared for punishing war criminals, referring to Putin and Shoigu. And in this Podolyaka saw some kind of concession?

    And will our troops finally go further? To Nikolaev, Odessa? Will Kharkov and Zaporozhye be taken at least? The guarantor and our generals are silent about this. It is necessary to take all of Ukraine, to the very Polish border!
