Russian Foreign Ministry advocates direct talks with Ukraine

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that possible negotiations with Ukraine should be carried out without the participation of intermediaries. The need for direct diplomatic contacts with Kyiv was stated by the director of the second department of the CIS countries of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexei Polishchuk in an interview TASS.

According to the diplomat, Western mediators participating in the negotiations primarily pursue their own goals and can negatively influence the course of negotiations.

In the event that negotiations resume, they should be direct. This will be the best option. After all, as we know, Western countries in the negotiation processes act not to resolve the conflict, but in their own economic и political interests

- Alexey Polishchuk emphasized.

At the beginning of the Russian special military operation, the delegations of Moscow and Kyiv met without the participation of mediators in Belarus, and the last face-to-face meeting took place on March 29 last year in Istanbul.

Earlier, all the participants in the Minsk talks, who were at them as mediators, frankly admitted to lying. Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the agreements signed in Belarus were just an excuse to delay the armed conflict and ensure the strengthening of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Before the New Year, the words of the German participant in the Minsk talks were also confirmed by former French President Francois Hollande.

    These are our foreign ministries.
    On the one hand, they say that Ukraine is not sovereign, there is nothing to talk about with it. If you talk, then only with the United States.
    Then some Polishchuk comes out and declares the need for direct negotiations with Ukraine?!
    It seems that the Foreign Ministry has its own Manturov.
    What are the negotiations with Ukraine?
    Only the surrender of Kyiv!

      in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since the time of Shevardnadze, there are only "Manturovs" and they are assembled ... they learned to chat beautifully and learned to kalinka-malinka, but not to work

        and what can be expected from the head of the Foreign Ministry, who spent his youth at the UN, where, apart from chatter and portraying violent activity, they never did anything. Gromyko's times have long since sunk into oblivion.

    The Ministry of Concerns again started its hurdy-gurdy, but the most important thing is not to interfere with the military to bring the matter to the complete defeat of the Ukronazis

    Why don't they ask the people: "Why do we need inadequate people at the border? Wouldn't it be time to remove them and expand the borders?"

    A beautiful wrapper is being prepared for the actual recognition of defeat in the war with NATO.
    Without the participation of NATO, there can be no negotiations - the nationalists will agree on the terms of the truce with NATO in any way, so it’s better to have a conversation directly with NATO, it’s possible without Ukraine, with which Mr. Medinsky negotiated and negotiated in Belarus and Turkey, and NATO decided everything in its own way.
    Without the official cancellation of the Eastern Partnership program for the actual assimilation of not yet assimilated Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine and the Transcaucasian state formations, plans for the “decolonization” of the Russian Federation, the lifting of sanctions, the restoration of the rights of the Russian Federation in all international organizations, the withdrawal of US troops and weapons from Europe, conclusions new treaties on arms limitation and control, etc., etc. - what can we talk about? Only about the scale and timing of the start of a new war.

      there is only one nuance, the West is now set only to defeat Russia and its fragmentation into an ersatz state, so Putin will have to fight whether he wants it or not
