Russia’s three conditions for ending the war with Ukraine – Marca English

Russia‘s invasion into Ukraine could be stopped, according to Moscow, so long as three requirements are met.

Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin‘s spokesperson, has set out the three conditions that Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy and his government must fulfil so that there will be no more deaths on Ukrainian soil.

Russia’s conditions

One of conditions set out by Russia is that they want to insist on neutrality for Ukraine. Another is that Russia ‘will finish’ the demilitarisation of the neighbouring country, while they also want Kyiv to recognise the breakaway regions and the loss of Crimea.

“We really are finishing the demilitarisation of Ukraine. We will finish it. But the main thing is that Ukraine ceases its military action. They should stop their military action and then no one will shoot,” said Peskov.

“They should make amendments to the constitution according to which Ukraine would reject any aims to enter any bloc.

“We have also spoken about how they should recognise that Crimea is Russian territory and that they need to recognise that Donetsk and Lugansk are independent states. And that’s it. It will stop in a moment.”

With those three conditions the conflict would stop, according to Russia.

However, these are requirements that Ukraine has so far rejected, as Zelenskiy does not want to give independence to the Donbas areas, and has applied for EU and NATO membership. Moreover, he considers the annexation of Crimea to be illegal.
