Vladimir Putin did not convey a special message to Vladimir Zelensky through the President of Guinea-Bissau, Omar Sissoka Embalo, about his readiness for negotiations. This was stated at a briefing by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the words of the African leader.

On October 25, the President of Guinea-Bissau held talks with Putin in Moscow, and the next day he went to Kyiv to meet with the President of Ukraine. During a press conference with Zelensky, Embalo said that Putin asked him to convey a message of readiness for negotiations with Kyiv.

According to Peskov, in a conversation with the President of Guinea-Bissau, Putin only presented the already known position of the Russian Federation on readiness for negotiations, which has not changed.

Now, de facto, Russia does not change its position, we are ready to ensure our interests at the negotiating table, we want this. But in this case, we are talking about complete unwillingness on the part of Ukraine. That’s what was discussed.

Our colleague from an African state expressed a desire and said that he would have contacts and that he would convey this position of Putin to the Ukrainian side. There is no specific message in this case, and this was not discussed.

Russia and Ukraine began peace talks shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukrainian territory. Negotiations were held in Turkey, but were frozen in April. After that, the Ukrainian authorities refused to resume negotiations with Russia, saying that only a victory could protect the country from a new invasion in a few years.

In late September – early October, Russia annexed the occupied territories in the south and east of Ukraine. After that, Vladimir Zelensky said that he was ready for a dialogue with the Russian Federation, but with another president. A few days later, he signed a decree on “the impossibility of negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
