Dmitry Polyansky does not see diplomatic possibilities for resolving the situation around Ukraine.
The position of the Russian Federation on Ukraine’s accession to the European Union has changed. Moscow’s new opinion on the EU is similar to the position on Ukraine’s accession to NATO.
Dmitry Polyansky, Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, stated this in an interview with the British online publication UnHerd.
“Russia’s position on Kyiv’s desire to join the EU has changed, now it is similar to the position on Ukraine’s entry into NATO,” Polyansky said.
At the same time, he said that he does not see diplomatic opportunities for resolving the situation around Ukraine now.
“At this stage, frankly speaking, I do not see any opportunities for a diplomatic settlement, given the position of Ukraine and attempts to inflame this conflict by Western countries. I must admit that there are no opportunities for diplomacy now,” summed up the Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN .
