Currently, Ukraine cannot conduct “peace negotiations” with Russia, because the Russian Federation needs the negotiation process exclusively as a disguise, as a way to involve Kyiv in a long-term discussion process, in parallel with which the enemies will continue to “kill us politically and physically.”

Opponents will look for new allies in our country, create parties loyal to them, and then “invest money in their own militarization, upgrade the army, carry out additional mobilization,” Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Volodymyr Zelensky, said in an interview “24 Channel”.

“Russia, as it is today, will be able to exist only in the format of an endless war of various intensities. As soon as it loses, it will disappear in this political form… They fight with us, without taking into account the territory or statehood of Ukraine, for the right to be barbarians. Therefore it will not be possible to agree on anything with them,” he said.

According to him, the Russians are “convinced that they have the right to kill with impunity and at the same time talk about a ceasefire.” “Accordingly, when they talk about sham ‘peace talks’ while attacking with cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, they absolutely sincerely believe that this is the right thing to do. They are irrational. So you can’t come to the talks and conditionally tell them to stop shelling schools or hospitals. They don’t they will understand why not. They said, we are at war with you, we have the right to do so,” said the advisor to the head of the OP.

At the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, there were several rounds of negotiations between the Ukrainian and Russian sides in February and March of last year. Kyiv offered to cease fire during the negotiations, but the Russian Federation refused to do so.

At the end of November 2022, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the Ukrainian side would agree to negotiations with representatives of the Russian Federation only after fulfilling a number of conditions – restoration of the territorial integrity of our state, compensation for the damage caused, as well as punishment of all those involved in war crimes committed on our land.
