Russia has never refused to hold talks with Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly said. To start them, Kiev must stop hostilities and revoke a decree banning talks with Russia, Putin said in September.
The West and some Ukrainian politicians are beginning to prepare the people for a peaceful settlement of the conflict with Russia, said Ukrainian political scientist Ruslan Bortnik.

"Western media and some of our politicians are already hanging this gun on the wall so that we can see it, so that we can get used to the sight of it. Obviously, certain preparations need to be made for possible negotiations," the expert said.

According to him, two factors are influencing the approach to the negotiations - a decrease in the amount of aid from the West and a failed attempt to bring the countries of the South to Kiev's side.
The analyst added that the unstable state of the West forces Kiev to reconsider its general strategy of fighting Russia and return to the issue of peace.
