MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russia expects Ukraine to accept is demands and develop the awareness of the current situation, Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told the media on Thursday.
In this way he commented on a call from the United States’ former presidential national security advisor, Henry Kissinger (1969-1975) for Ukraine’s neutral status and concessions by Kiev.
"Russia is waiting for Kiev to accept Moscow’s demands and develop the awareness of the situation de facto - the real situation that there exists," Peskov said in reply to a corresponding question from TASS.
Earlier, Kiev criticized Kissinger’s proposal. An advisor to the Ukrainian presidential office, Mikhail Podolyak, said that proposals by some Western partners for territorial concessions were a "stab in Kiev’s back."
Peskov remarked that the point at issue was not territorial concessions.
"Kiev should come to grips with the situation that it exists de facto and evaluate it in a clear-headed manner," he reiterated.
