Slutsky: Zelenskiy shattered in agony, saying Russia wants a respite from conflict, not peace
MOSCOW, November 19 – RIA Novosti. Volodymyr Zelensky is not an independent figure, shattered in agony, and the incident in Poland is a great illustration of that. declaration Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Relations.
Earlier, when talking about the possibility of negotiation with Ukraine, Zelensky said that he believed that Russia did not seek peace, but only to achieve a “short-term stagnation” in hostilities.
“Zelensky is clearly in anguish. Either he is allegedly ready for negotiations and even presents some of his own formats, or he will not negotiate for anything with Russia and will even issue some decrees …. The President of Ukraine is not one. Independent figure. And the Ukrainian regime’s commitment to NATO The incident in Poland, where his provocation clearly failed to bring it into an open conflict with Russia, is a wonderful indicator,” he wrote on his Telegram channel.
Slutsky noted that Russia’s position “always remained clear”.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is ready for negotiations, but noted that Kiev has banned them at the legislative level. Zelenskiy said he had received signals from his Western partners that Russia wanted to hold direct talks and offered a public format. Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, said that Washington could do a lot if desired, including impressing Kiev in terms of greater cohesion.
Earlier, Zelenskiy explained his vision of 10-point steps to restore peace in Ukraine during an online speech at the G20 summit. Also at the G20, “There will be no Minsk-3,” Peskov said in a comment to RIA Novosti, saying that such remarks “absolutely confirm” Kiev’s stance on its reluctance to negotiate.
On the evening of November 15, a rocket crashed on Polish territory near the village of Przewoduv, near the Ukrainian border. Two people died. First, Warsaw stated that these were Russian-made and that the country had convened the NATO Council. But on Wednesday, Polish President Andrzej Duda said the missiles most likely belonged to Ukraine.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense on Tuesday, there were no attacks on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish border that day, and the published photos of some of the wreckage have nothing to do with Russian weapons. The ministry noted that all statements by the Polish media regarding the alleged downing of “Russian” missiles were a deliberate provocation aimed at escalation. On Wednesday, Russia’s defense ministry noted that photos from the crime scene published in Poland clearly show that parts of a missile from the Ukrainian S-300 air defense system fell there.
