Russia sees no preconditions for negotiations with Ukraine — Kremlin spokesman

Dmitry Peskov noted that Ukraine withdrew from the negotiations process several months ago and "states on various levels - from high to the highest - that it plans to solve problems on the battlefield"

MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. A negotiation process between Moscow and Kiev could be useful, but there are no preconditions for that yet, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday.

"A negotiations process is, of course, useful. It is useful for achievement of our goals. But, as we have said it already, we see no preconditions for a negotiations process," the spokesman said.

He noted that Ukraine withdrew from the negotiations process several months ago and "states on various levels - from high to the highest - that it plans to solve problems on the battlefield."

"You are well aware of our President’s reaction," Peskov concluded.
