Russia cautions over returning to Ukraine’s peace discussions

(MENAFN) Two months following discussions targeted at stopping the Ukraine war failed, at Kiev's instigation, Russia cautioned on the possibility of reviving the process. If Ukraine will go back to discussions, Moscow will have to look at the “situation on the ground,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced in an interview.

He blamed some Western nations of not permitting the Kiev experts to re-engage with a diplomatic effort to stop the war.

“When [Ukraine] deigns to turn to us with a proposal to resume the diplomatic process, which, as I understand it, the Europeans are urgently asking them to do, but the Anglo-Saxons do not allow this, we will look at the situation on the ground,” Lavrov announced in an interview with Belarusian state TV.

“There are liberated areas, and the majority of the population there don’t even entertain the thought of returning under the control of neo-Nazi authorities or authorities that indulge neo-Nazism in every way possible,” he further declared.
