Ukraine demands Russia withdraw all troops, including in Crimea, Donbas - Arestovych

The Ukrainian side demands the complete withdrawal of enemy troops from its territories, including the Crimea and Donbas.

This was announced by the adviser to the head of the President's Office Oleksiy Arestovych on the air of Nastoyascheye Vremya. He later commented that this was his personal position, but not that of the delegation that is currently negotiating with the representatives of the aggressor country.

Our delegation is headed by Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov. The delegation included Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President's Office, leader of the Servant of the People faction, representatives of the Foreign Ministry and parliament, and head of the Three-sided Contact Group," Arestovych said

He added that Ukrainian delegation will not elucidate the course of the negotiations until the join communique. But the Ukrainian position is clear - no Russian ultimatums. When the Russian federation offered the first negotiations and stated that Ukraine has to surrender, we refused to take part in them. Then Russia asked for the negotiations again.

Our conditions are clear. Сeasefire and full withdrawal of Russian troops - I think is the one on the table now. Also from Donbas and Crimea. All the troops out of the Ukrainian territories. We’ll bury all of you anyway , better leave voluntarily,” he said.

It is to be recalled that yesterday Lukashenko and Zelenskyy agreed on negotiations between the delegations of Ukraine and Russia at the border.

On the morning of February 27, the media of the occupying country wrote that the negotiators from Russia had arrived in Belarus for talks with Ukraine and were ready to do so in Gomel. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy replied that we were ready for negotiations in any country from which missiles are not allowed into Ukraine.
