The German Chancellor said that rapid progress is needed in the negotiation process between Russia and Ukraine in order to avoid new casualties and destruction
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called for the resumption and concretization of negotiations between Russia and Ukraine in order to quickly reach a peaceful settlement. He stated this at a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.
“Our demand is that negotiations resume, that negotiations between Russia and Ukraine become more concrete and that agreements be reached very quickly. After many, many thousands of deaths, there should be no new victims and more destruction in Ukraine. Instead, we must now ensure progress in the negotiations, — Scholz said (quote from Stern).
He also stressed that “it is impossible to imagine” that Ukraine would agree to a “peace dictated to it”, as well as to a situation in which it is “imposed” on it; conditions that it, for reasons of sovereignty and territorial integrity, cannot accept.
Macron, in turn, during a press conference with Scholz said that the main goal of the EU— achieve a ceasefire, establish peace and withdraw Russian troops. “Negotiations” the only way to restore the world»,— emphasized the French president.
In early April, Moscow announced that it wanted to complete the military operation in Ukraine through negotiations and was interested in President Vladimir Zelensky agreeing to its proposals.
Russian and Ukrainian delegations have held several rounds of peace talks since late February, as face-to-face and remotely. The greatest progress was achieved during the meeting in Istanbul on March 29, when the parties settled several issues at once. After that, Moscow and Kyiv handed over draft documents on the settlement of the situation to each other.

However, then Moscow announced that Kyiv had abandoned the Istanbul agreements. President Vladimir Putin, in particular, spoke about this, specifying that a deadlock had set in in the negotiation process.
On May 9, Presidential Aide Vladimir Medinsky, who is the head of the Russian delegation, said that negotiations in a remote format had not been terminated.< /p> Article content Authors Tags Subscribe to Telegram
