The US regime and its hostile allies are still interested in a continued conflict in Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday. Western nations effectively prevent the government in Kiev from even thinking about any potential peace talks, the official added.

When asked about potential reasons that have led German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron to no longer call Russian President Vladimir Putin, Peskov called this another sign suggesting that western leaders are not interested in achieving peace through dialogue and negotiations.

The position of the western nations –led by Washington– leads to a situation where they allow Ukrainians neither to think nor talk about or discuss peace. The Kremlin believes that “common sense” would eventually prevail and the sides will return to the negotiation table.

Kiev will still have to once again understand all the demands put forward by Moscow before the talks could continue, the Kremlin spokesman pointed out.

The Ukrainian government is well aware of Russia’s position, he said, adding that Kiev just needs to sit down at the [negotiation] table and sign a document that has already been largely agreed.

Moscow and Kiev started peace talks just four days after the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine in late February, 2022.

The sides have held several rounds in person in Belarus and then continued the talks via a video link. In late March 2022, the delegations from Russia and Ukraine met once again in Istanbul.

Since then, however, the talks have completely stalled, as the Ukrainian side has insisted it would only come back to the table when it was in a stronger negotiating position. In April, Putin accused Kiev of bringing the process to a deadlock.

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, 2022 citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state.

The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were first signed in 2014. Former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and create powerful armed NATO-backed forces.

In February 2022, the Kremlin recognized the Donbass republics as independent states and demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join any Western military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.

In a DNA test carried out by an Israeli Professor of Genetics less than 1 % of the Jews living in Israel had DNA traced back to the Hebrews of over 2000 years ago –OTOH- Palestinians when tested had a much higher rate of traceable DNA back 1000,s of years . Remember Khazari,s weren’t Jewish but converted en masse to Judaism.

Imagine that related to what is happening to the Palestinians, most of them have been deported to refugee camps in countries where ISIS likes to kill as much as possible?

Russia surely privately regrets now its stand off and abandonment of its former ally Iraq in the second gulf war, 2003, when the US obliterated Iraqi armed forces almost to nothingness. Russia thought then it had no direct deep national geopolitical interest to jump in and bolster Iraqi defenses to bleed US and prolong its losses in the same manner the US is now stating it’s target to be doing with Ukraine. China needs to be fully aware therefore that the US could fall exactly into Russia’s act when it comes to Taiwan and US will most likely take a… Read more »
