Ukraine and Russia are reportedly working on a preliminary peace agreement on 15 points, according to the Financial Times.
The newspaper claims to have received the information from three people participating in the negotiations, writes NTB, which states that Ukraine will, among other things, accept neutrality and military restrictions, give up its ambitions for membership in NATO and promise not to allow foreign bases or weapons on Ukrainian territory. In return, they will receive security guarantees.
It is more unclear what happens to other Russian demands, such as the status of Crimea, Luhansk, and Donetsk.
In recent days, both Russian and Ukrainian negotiators have expressed quite an optimism about the discussions that are taking place.
The West and NATO
The provision to apply for NATO membership is currently enshrined in Ukraine's constitution, but President Volodymyr Zelenskyj has said after the invasion that he has "cooled down" to the idea because "the alliance does not want us".
Ukraine's chief negotiator Mykhailo Podoljak told the Financial Times that any deal would involve "Russian troops leaving Ukrainian territory" that has been captured since the February 24 invasion. This applies to large areas in the south of the country along the Azov Sea and the Black Sea, as well as areas north and northeast of Kyiv.
Two sources in the negotiating delegation say that the tentative agreement contains points about the rights to the Russian language in Ukraine. Russia has used the protection of Russian-speakers against "genocide" from "neo-Nazis" as part of the basis for the invasion.
Crimea and Donbas
The biggest obstacle now will be Russia's demand that Ukraine recognizes the Crimean peninsula, which was annexed in 2014, as part of Russia, and the independence of the two separatist-controlled counties in the Donbas region.
Ukraine has so far refused to do so but will be willing to exclude it from the tentative agreement.
Disputed areas and conflict areas are separate matters. So far, we are talking about a guaranteed withdrawal from territories that have been occupied since the military operation began on February 24, when the Russian invasion began, Podoljak says.
The draft peace agreement mentioned in the Financial Times is just a draft that shows the Russians' demands, says an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky.
This emerges from a Twitter message posted by Ukraine's chief negotiator, Presidential Adviser Mykhailo Podoljak.
- Brief: The Financial Times has published a draft that represents the demands from the Russian side. Nothing more than that. The Ukrainian side has its own demands, he writes, listing.
- Ceasefire, withdrawal of Russian soldiers, and security guarantees from a number of countries.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
