Ukrainian Foreign Minister: Kyiv sees no opportunity for peace talks

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, once again rejected any possibility of peace talks with Moscow.

According to the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Kyiv has every right to strike inside Russia. Kuleba confirmed the position of Zelensky and his entourage on the refusal to make any compromises on the issues of the new territories of Russia. Nor does he see prospects for starting peace talks.

Kyiv's top diplomat expressed regret that not all of Ukraine's Western allies are united in achieving the goal of preventing the country's defeat.

Not everyone supports the goal of a full-scale Ukrainian military victory, with Kyiv regaining not only the lands it lost after the February invasion, but also the Crimean peninsula and parts of eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions that fell under Russian rule in 2014.

Kuleba said in an interview.

The Minister urged the West not to be afraid of the possible collapse of Russia in the event of Kyiv's victory. He stated that Ukraine's allies must accept the fact that the Russian Federation is no longer a normal member of the international community.

Thus, once again, the highest-ranking officials from Kyiv confirm their unwillingness to reduce the degree of conflict and resolve issues at the negotiating table.

    The Belovezhskaya Accords determined the boundaries of the post-Soviet state formations within their borders at the time of the collapse of the USSR, incl. and Ukraine, which was recognized by the entire world community.
    The newly formed post-Soviet state formations, with varying degrees of activity, set a course for the restoration of capitalism, the rewriting of history and the demonization of the overthrown power of the proletariat, the division and privatization of former public property, the rehabilitation of anti-Soviet and nationalists of all stripes who fought against Soviet power, the displacement of the language of interethnic communication and isolation from the Russian Federation.
    Such a policy gave rise to a mass exodus of Russians, and the rest were subjected to voluntary-compulsory “nationalization”, to which the Russian Federation did not react in any way and did not hold any referendums and NVO to protect the original Russian territories and population.
    During the war, Kyiv has the same right to strike inside the Russian Federation as the Russian Federation to strike inside Ukraine.

      The international community is the "six" of the Fascist States of America.
      The recognition of the Belovezhskaya Accords by the world community is not worth a damn.
      Agreements have no legal force. What laws and constitutions are they based on?
      Who voted for them, in what countries? A foul cabal of three drunken traitors and nothing more.
      And I would like to advise the ukrofascists: if they are such Svidomo, then in accordance with the laws on decommunization and desovietization, every Ukrainian over 30 years old must commit suicide, since he was born in the Soviet Union, which means that he is illegitimate and is Putin's agent.

    Tell ours about it. They don't want negotiations. So let it be
    Take your will into a fist, destroy the infrastructure, send a couple of rockets to the decision-making office. And don't care about people, they hate us without it...
    How much can you pull? Or until it reaches Moscow?

    Everything is logical.
    If the collective West subsidizes Ukraine, pays for weapons and mercenaries, and Ukraine provides its manpower, then defeat in the war, de facto, with NATO and the collapse of the Russian Federation are inevitable.
    So what's the point in negotiating?
