The statements of the President of Ukraine on joining NATO speak of Kyiv’s unwillingness and inability to resolve the “Ukraine conflict” at the negotiating table, Dmitry Peskov believes.
The aggressor country Russia demands to ensure its security, which “rules out” the further expansion of NATO and Ukraine’s entry into the Alliance. This is what Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said at a briefing on Friday, June 2.
“Russia will seek to ensure its interests and its security. This does not include the expansion of the Alliance and its direct approach to our borders, including Ukraine’s membership in NATO. Of course, this is one of the main irritants of potential problems for many, many Many countries in Europe, Oddly enough, they know this,” he said.
According to Peskov, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s statements about joining NATO speak about Kyiv’s unwillingness and inability to resolve the “Ukrainian conflict” at the negotiating table.
He also said that there are no prerequisites for negotiations between Moscow and Kiev.
“We have repeatedly spoken about dialogue – now there is no such option. It is not visible, and there are no requirements,” said the Kremlin spokesman, commenting on the situation around Ukraine.
It will be remembered that on June 1, Volodymyr Zelensky said that he expects Ukraine to be accepted into the EU and NATO as soon as possible. He also believes that all countries with common borders with Russia, including Ukraine, should join the EU and NATO as soon as possible. Otherwise, only two options await them – open war or occupation.
