Moscow, February 26 – Reconciliation and improvement of relations between Moscow and Kiev is impossible in the next 100 years, according to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal. An interview with the German edition of Focus has been published on the website of the Government of the Republic.
Earlier, Andrea Kendall, an expert from the Center for a New American Security, said that US officials are advising Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to be diplomatic and consider the possibility of negotiations with Russia. American statesmen asked him to take into account the opinion of countries that did not join Moscow’s condemnation, and not to appear in the eyes of the international community as a leader who is categorically opposed to dialogue.
Russia has repeatedly indicated its readiness for a diplomatic process, but Ukraine has imposed a ban on negotiations at the legislative level. Zelensky said at the G-20 summit in November last year that “there will be no Minsk-3”. The Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that such words fully confirm Kiev’s position on its unwillingness to start a dialogue.
