Dmitry Peskov said that not Ukraine, but the United States had the decisive voice in the settlement of the Ukraine conflict. Prerequisites for talks between Putin and Biden could be the security guarantees proposed by Moscow in December 2021.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke in an interview about the Ukraine conflict. According to the Russian President’s press secretary, the decisive voice for solving the Ukraine conflict would lie in Washington and not in Kyiv. Literally it said:

“Obviously, the decisive voice lies in Washington. With Kyiv, for example, it’s impossible to talk about anything.”

Peskov also specified that while some agreements could be made with Ukraine, they “can then be canceled in a jiffy on orders from outside.” Therefore, they are worth nothing, the Kremlin spokesman concluded. When asked what could be a basis for talks between Vladimir Putin and US leader Joe Biden, Dmitry Peskov replied that they were about Russia’s December 2021 security guarantee proposals.

“The desire of the United States to listen to our concerns, [könnte eine Basis für die Gespräche sein; Anm. d. Red.]. It’s really about the desire of the United States to go back to where it was in December-January and to ask ourselves: what the Russians are proposing might not suit us, but maybe we should sit down with them at the negotiating table.”

The documents were then sent to both Brussels and Washington. Several rounds of talks on Russia’s proposals took place in January 2021, but the parties failed to agree on the main points.

In particular, in draft security guarantees, the Russian side demanded that NATO legally guarantee that the alliance would not expand further east, that Ukraine would not join the bloc, and that it would not set up military bases in post-Soviet states. The proposals also included a point about not stationing NATO forces near Russia’s borders and withdrawing NATO forces in Eastern Europe to the positions in 1997.
