Russia open to “truly serious” Ukraine peace proposals, Foreign Ministry says

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated Russia is prepared to consider “truly serious” proposals for peace talks to end the war in Ukraine. 

“Russia is ready to consider truly serious proposals that are based on realities and take into account our security interests, but the language of blackmail and threats is unacceptable to us,” Zakharova said during a briefing, as reported by Sky News. 

Zakharova’s comments reiterated Russia’s professed willingness to negotiate while blaming Ukraine and the West for obstructing such efforts. She also said any proposal must include a commitment from Ukraine to maintain future military neutrality.

This formula will be the focus of the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland on June 15-16, which excludes Russian participation.
