Russia’s offers to talk about negotiations in the Ukraine war trigger skepticism in Kiev.

"Russia does not want negotiations and is trying to avoid responsibility (for the war)," tweeted Sunday Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

According to Podoljak, the government of Ukraine is demanding "a tribunal" of an international court of justice before which the Russian leadership must answer.

.: An informal summit of the “Commonwealth of Independent States” (CIS) is to take place in Moscow on December 26th and 27th.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invited the Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko, among others.

Update, 3:35 p.m .:

In a video speech, President Volodymyr Zelenskyj addressed the people of Ukraine.

He wished people a Merry Christmas.

Referring to the ongoing attacks from Russia, Zelenskyy said: "We will not wait for a miracle.

We will do one thing ourselves.” The Ukrainian President did not respond to Vladimir Putin's indirect offers of talks.

Negotiations in the Ukraine war?

Putin seems ready

First report from December 25th, 2022:

Moscow – The combat operations in the Ukraine war did not take a break at Christmas either.

Troops from shelled the Ukrainian city of Cherson on Sunday night (December 24, 2022).

Ukraine, in turn, reported that its own forces had managed to destroy several Russian combat vehicles.

But on Sunday morning Moscow struck a different note.

Russian President Vladimir Putin personally said in an interview with the state-controlled TV channel

Rossya 1

about the ongoing conflict in Ukraine: "We are ready to negotiate acceptable solutions with all parties involved, but that is up to them - we are not refusing negotiations, They are.” In the interview, Putin also stressed that the Russian army was “on the right track” with its deployment in Ukraine.

Ukraine war: Putin sees no great danger in the conflict with the West

He again blamed the West.

The goal of a foreign alliance led by the United States is to tear Russia apart.

It was also the West that started the Ukraine conflict in the first place in 2014 - by driving the then pro-Russian President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, out of office during the Maidan protests in Kyiv.

But in the interview, in which Putin addressed negotiations with Ukraine for the first time in a long time, the Russian president tried to downplay the conflict with the West.

This has not reached a dangerous level.

Putin again called the invasion of the troops he commanded a "military special operation".

The word “war”, which the President had used for the first time days earlier, was omitted again this time.

Negotiations in the Ukraine war: No results so far

Even after more than 300 days of war in Ukraine, there have been no serious negotiations on a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy's government in Kyiv has always emphasized that it will only consider negotiations once all Russian troops have left Ukrainian soil.

According to Selenskyj, these would not only include the areas conquered in the war that has been going on since February last year.

Russia would also have to withdraw from the Crimean Peninsula, annexed in 2014.

In the past few days, Moscow has again emphasized that it will be ready to negotiate once the goals of the military special operation have been achieved.

What these goals are remains the Kremlin's secret.
