Russia rejects Erdogan's offer to mediate Putin-Zelensky talks

01.12.2021 17:10

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has rejected the proposal put forward by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to make Turkey a mediator in Donbas settlement talks between Ukraine and Russia.

That’s according to a report by Izvestia, referring to Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, as seen by Ukrinform.

“There can be no talk of any mediating role of Turkey between Russia and Ukraine on resolving the internal Ukrainian conflict,” Zakharova told a briefing.

At the same time, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quoted by Russian media, said that the presidents of Russia and Turkey could have a phone call on December 3, during which the issue of Ukraine could be raised. At the same time, according to Peskov, the Russian Federation hopes “Erdogan encourages Kyiv” to fulfill its obligations (in the Russian interpretation) regarding the Minsk-2 package of measures.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on November 29 that Turkey was ready to take part in resolving the situation in eastern Ukraine, offering mediation in settlement talks between Ukraine and Russia.

    • I wonder if she realizes how stupid she looks when she spouts lies that have been debunked for years? I wonder what the thousands and thousands of parents of those carted away in Cargo 200 vans think of her lies? Why would rabid Moskali participate in a Ukrainian “internal conflict”?
      Maybe Ukraine should announce the removal of ruSSo-swine in the Donbas and then take Transnistria instead……….

  2. That Putin would not accept the good offices of anyone is no surprise. Putin is doing all he can to hide the fact that Russia is a participant. The fact that his troops have been captured in the Donbas, still holding their military ID on their person, reveals Putin to be a liar.

    The man was a voluntary communist and has never changed. He is, to be frank, an unreconstructed Soviet.
