Russia is ready to negotiate with all parties involved in the war in Ukraine. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin, accusing Kiev and its Western allies of “refusing” to negotiate. The Guardian reports it. Speaking in an interview on state television Rossiya 1, Putin said: “We are ready to negotiate with all involved on acceptable solutions, but it depends on them: we are not the ones who refuse to negotiate.” But Kiev’s reply immediately arrives: “Putin needs to get back to reality. Russia has attacked Ukraine alone and is killing civilians. Russia does not want negotiations, but is trying to avoid its responsibilities. This is obvious, so we are moving towards the Tribunal,” Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on Twitter.
