TOKYO, March 25 – RIA Novosti. Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in an interview with the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri that he did not receive any offers from China for mediation or negotiations.

Russia and China drew attention to the importance of security in resolving the situation in Ukraine
“First of all, respect the sovereignty and indivisibility of the region,” said Zelenskiy, who was interpreted as saying that the newspaper did not see China’s offer as a peace offer.
Earlier, Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of Zelensky’s office, said that a phone call between Zelensky and Chinese President Xi may not take place due to some difficulties in their organization. Prior to this, there were allegations in the Ukrainian and Western media that the Chinese leader would go to Kiev or promised to call after his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In February, Chinese officials proposed peace plans. The ceasefire calls contain 12 clauses, including respect for the legitimate interests of all countries in the field of security and resolution of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. According to the President of the Russian Federation, many items of the Chinese peace plan can be taken as the basis for a solution when the West and Kiev are ready for this.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated that Zelensky’s so-called “peace formula” “has nothing to do with peace”. According to him, “this is nothing more than a series of requests for ultimatums detached from reality towards our country. Among them, the withdrawal of troops from the Russian regions – the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson region, and even the Crimea, payment of compensation and surrender to international courts in Ukraine ” “The aim of the formula is to secure the surrender of Russia with the help of the West.”
This is how he interpreted the statement made by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba during his meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang. Kuleba later stressed the importance of the ‘peace formula’ that Zelensky used to stop aggression and restore a just peace in Ukraine.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is ready for negotiations, but Kiev has banned them at the legislative level. Zelensky had said earlier at the G20 that “there will be no Minsk-3”.
