Russian propaganda has launched another fake about Ukraine. In particular, it says that Kyiv is preparing to start negotiations with the Kremlin in June, Center for Countering Disinformation reports.

“The information that Ukraine is allegedly preparing to start peace talks with Russia in June is not true. The dissemination of these theses online is a manipulation around the statement of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy,” the statement said.

The Center noted that a disinformation thesis is being spread that “Zelenskyy announced the beginning of peace-making with Russia in June 2024.”

Zelenskyy stated: “The global majority should force Russia into peace and can do it. It is in June that the path to a just peace can begin.”

In making this statement, the President was referring to the Peace Summit based on the Ukrainian Peace Formula in Switzerland, which will become a platform for discussing the future of the peace process.

“The Russian Federation will not be a participant in this event, so there is no question of any ‘peace agreement’ being made,” the Center noted.

In addition, it is noted that such messages help the enemy in its efforts to sow decadent moods in Ukrainian society.

Negotiations between Ukraine and Russia

Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, several rounds of negotiations have been held between the two sides. However, these talks have not yielded significant results.

The Ukrainian government is now clearly stating that it will not sit at the negotiating table again until Russia withdraws its troops from Ukrainian territory.

Earlier, NBC News reported that the US and the EU had begun informal discussions with Ukraine on the possibility of peace talks with Russia. During these discussions, the issues that Ukraine could agree to in exchange for peace were discussed.

However, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy strongly denied these claims. He emphasized that no one was putting pressure on Ukraine to negotiate.

Thus, at the moment, the prospects for the resumption of negotiations between Ukraine and Russia remain vague. Ukraine is making its position clear, refusing to negotiate under pressure.
