War in Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Peskov closes the door to peace

There appears to be little room for negotiating a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Ukraine. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke about this during a briefing with journalists. Russia “at the moment does not see any prerequisites for resolving the situation around Ukraine in a peaceful direction, which makes it necessary to continue a special military operation,” Peskov said according to TASS reports. The most sensitive issues naturally concern areas of Ukraine already conquered by Russia, such as Crimea. Moscow «cannot imagine circumstances in which the return of Crimea to Ukraine would be possible. No, it’s not possible. It is an integral part of the Russian Federation.”

But the Kremlin also said it was “concerned” with the situation in Transnistria, the breakaway region of Moldova, and underlined that “it is a subject of maximum attention” in Moscow. “The situation is turbulent and is caused from outside. We know how our opponents in the Kiev regime and in European countries are capable of various types of provocation,” added the Kremlin spokesman. Finally, the reference to the recent new sanctions imposed by Europe on Russia. “They are nonsense, they include people who have nothing to do with sanctions, just to form new lists,” concluded Dmitry Peskov.
