Russia: Ukraine’s proposals speak of its desire for a neutral and nuclear-free status


ALERT:  Sourced from Russian State-Controlled Media – The head of the Russian delegation at the talks with Ukraine, aide to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Medinsky summed up the results of the meeting with the Ukrainian side in Istanbul.

Medinsky said that the conversation turned out to be meaningful, and the Russian delegation received from Ukraine “a clearly formulated position on inclusion in the treaty.” According to him, Ukraine’s written proposals confirm its desire for a neutral and non-nuclear status. This, in particular, is about refusing to produce and deploy all types of weapons of mass destruction on the territory of Ukraine and a ban on the presence of foreign bases and troops on its territory, writes NTV .

“These proposals will be considered in the near future and will be presented to the President. And our corresponding response will be given,” Medinsky said.

The Russian side, in turn, announced its intention to take two steps to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine: one military, the second political.

Medinsky also added that a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky “is possible simultaneously with the initialing of the agreement.”

“The proposed format was as follows: first, an agreement is prepared, then the agreement is approved by the negotiators, endorsed by the foreign ministers at the meeting, after which the possibility of a meeting of heads of state to sign this agreement is discussed,” he said.

Earlier it was reported that the first day of negotiations between representatives of Russia and Ukraine ended in Istanbul.
