MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Peace talks between Russia and Ukraine are impossible now under Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian opposition politician Viktor Medvedchuk said on Friday.
"It is impossible to stop military actions without understanding their reasons … If Zelensky is removed, then this is no longer a Korean scenario, if he is not removed, then it is impossible to stop military actions, even if the situation is catastrophic for his regime," Medvedchuk said in his article.
Zelensky is the first president of Ukraine who entrusted the fate of his nation to Western partners, the politician said, adding that the Ukrainian leader lost control over the situation and is "lying outright."

"It was the policy of the collective West, the aggressive expansion of NATO to the East, and the support of nazism in Ukraine that artificially created a conflict that risks escalating into the Third World War. Zelensky is simply playing the role of the victim," Medvedchuk said.

Russia launched its special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Since then, Moscow has said many times that it was ready to negotiate with Ukraine. Russian and Ukrainian delegations held several rounds of peace talks in the early days of the conflict, including in Turkiye in March 2022. However, negotiations failed, with Kiev legislating a ban on further peace talks. Western countries have been calling on Russia to engage in negotiations with Ukraine, by at the same time the West keeps ignoring Kiev's constant refusals for dialogue.
