Details: “No,” Grushko said, while answering to the question about whether the voiced condition of withdrawing the Russian forces was acceptable for the Russian Federation in negotiations about Ukraine.
Quote: “Such conditions are unacceptable. Our President has said multiple times that we are ready for negotiations, but they need to take the situation on the ground into account, indeed.”
Note: Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine could open negotiations with Russia after the return of all its territories within the borders of 1991, but there would be no return to the relations with Russia that existed before the war.
