Putin Press Secretary: Putin disagrees with Zelensky use of term occupied Donbas

The Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin does not agree with Ukrainian President Zelensky’s use of term “the occupied Donbas,” which he used during the negotiations at the Normandy Four meeting, reports TASS.

“During the negotiations, speakers made such a remark every time. They were saying “occupied territories as you say, but we disagree with that,” Peskov explained.

According to him, everyone clearly emphasized their disagreement with one or another wording.

“Putin repeatedly and constantly says that he does not agree with such wording, but Ukrainian representatives continue to use this formulation. It is a work-related situation during negotiations. No one refuses their formulations, but no one hesitates to speak about their disagreement,” said Peskov.

    A little English lesson for you Peskov. The meaning of the word occupation, taken from the Cambridge English dictionary.

    (of a country, city, or other place) filled with or run by people, esp. an army, who have moved in and taken control or possession:

    I think Zelensky described the situation in Donbas perfectly, he could have added Crimea for good measure.

    • I think Zelensky represented Ukraine well. He definitely gained some points. Nevertheless, he performs best when under massive pressure by Yulia, Petro and protesters in the streets of Kyiv.

      • He didn’t capitulate as some predicted, me included, but it’s early days yet. Putin is an evil bastard, and will not stop trying to destroy Ukraine any way he can.

        • My biggest concern is that Ukraine and the States are big into gas/oil business, like Russia. The danger of corruption and treason is very high. Ted Cruz is from Texas and just turned completely around, although he formerly supported Ukraine. This filthy business is a serious threat to those who want to stuff the russian mouse…
