Russia’s special operation to be suspended if Kiev fulfills Moscow’s demands — Kremlin
MOSCOW, March 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia’s military operation in Ukraine can be suspended only if Kiev ceases military actions and fulfills Moscow’s demands in a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Kremlin press service reported following the talks of the two leaders on Sunday.
“Vladimir Putin informed about the progress of the special military operation on protecting Donbass, conveyed principal approaches and assessments in this context, explained in detail basic set goals and tasks. It was emphasized that the special operation is proceeding according to a plan and is on schedule,” the statement said. It was noted that Russia’s armed forces “were doing everything possible to preserve the lives and guarantee the security of civilians, precision strikes are targeting exclusively the facilities of military infrastructure.”
“Against this background, the actions of nationalist neo-Nazi formations that continue the intensive shelling of Donbass and use civilians, including foreigners, practically taken hostage, as human shields in Ukrainian cities and localities, are particularly cruel and cynical,” the statement noted.
During the conversation, the Russian leader confirmed “the Russian side’s readiness for dialogue with Ukraine’s authorities and foreign partners in order to settle the conflict.” “That said, the futility was noted of any attempts to stall the negotiation process used by the Ukrainian army to regroup its forces and means. In relation to that, it was stressed that the suspension of the special operation is possible only if Kiev ceases the military actions and fulfills Russia’s demands that were made perfectly clear,” the Kremlin reported. “A hope was expressed that during another planned round of talks, Ukraine’s representatives will display a more constructive approach that fully takes into account the current circumstances,” the press service added.
TAP – A Ukrainian negotiator at the talks in Belarus was shot for ‘treason’ – shot during his arrest with no further discussion by the SBU – Ukraine’s internal security service who cliamed they have telephone evidence he was a double agent. Was he trying to make an alliance between Russia and the Ukrainian army to get rid of the National Brigades – the Ukronazis – so that Russia and Ukraine can become allies along with Belarus? Russia only wants the Nazis gone and the Ukraine military to stop shelling civilian areas in Donbass. With NATO puppet Zelensky in place this would be impossible, but within Ukraine there must be those who want Zelensky and NATO gone. – with Russian help. 90% of Ukrainians would love to be rid of the UkroNazis that seized power in 2014 in the Maidan massacre in Kyiv, and side with Russia against NATO. It is tragic that the Ukrainian army is fighting against the Russian army. They are the same people with the same interests. Only the evil of NATO and the bankers has orchestrated this catastrophe.
