The President of the Russian Federation urged to take into account “geopolitical realities” in a peaceful dialogue with Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an article for the Chinese newspaper Renmin Ribao (People’s Daily), pointed to Moscow’s readiness for negotiations with Kiev. However, in the course of these negotiations “geopolitical realities” must be taken into account. Material posted on the official website of the Kremlin.
“Russia is open to a politico-diplomatic settlement of the Ukrainian crisis. The future of the peace process depends solely on the readiness for a serious conversation, taking into account the prevailing geopolitical realities,” Putin said.
The President of Russia believes that the ultimatums addressed to the Russian Federation “speak only of isolation from such realities.” Vladimir Putin focused on the fact that the earlier talks “were by no means terminated by us.”
In the same article, the President of the Russian Federation thanked the Chinese leadership for its readiness to help in a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Ukraine.
The article by the President of Russia was published on the eve of the visit of the President of China to Moscow – it will last from March 20 to 22. It is expected that during the talks the politicians will discuss topical issues of further development of relations between Russia and China, as well as strategic interaction between the two countries.
