Stop the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine!
According to kyiv negotiator Mykhailo Podoliak, the Ukraine and Russia negotiations to end the war suspended for the time being.
Above all, the government in kyiv does not want to accept a peace dictated by Russia. “The negotiation process depends on the development of events in Ukraine,” Podoliak told Ukrainian television on Tuesday.
The situation has changed significantly since the beginning of the war. Since the two delegations met in Istanbul at the end of March, there has been “no significant change, no progress”, he said.
Podoliak accused Russia of continuing to think according to its stereotypes and not understanding the real situation in Ukraine and Russia’s extremely negative role after 82 days of war.
► Russia does not understand that the war “no longer takes place according to the rules, its plans and its timetable” while “the resistance of Ukraine is only growing, which is why Russia cannot achieve its objectives “.
The talks would resume only if there were concrete proposals.
“The war will not end if we give up anything”

kyiv rejects a face-saving solution for Kremlin boss Vladimir Putin, Podoljak said. Moreover, a ceasefire could only be discussed after a complete withdrawal of Russian troops. “The war doesn’t end if we give up anything,” Podoliak said.
︎ This is unacceptable for Ukraine. Only a complete liberation of all occupied territories is acceptable.
Russia had previously confirmed a temporary end to the talks. “No, the negotiations will not continue. Ukraine has practically withdrawn from the negotiation process,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko told reporters in Nizhny Novgorod.
Russia launched a war of aggression against Ukraine on February 24. After the first successes of the Russian army, the Ukrainian troops were able to stop the enemy and even push him back in places.
