Not even a Christmas or New Year’s cease-fire: Russia continues to wage war mercilessly in Ukraine | Ukraine and Russia war

Nor does Russia grant peaceful holidays to the Ukrainian population. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made that clear today. “At the moment there is no talk of a ceasefire during Christmas or New Year’s,” he said. Yesterday, Peskov had already emphasized that it was “out of the question” for Moscow to withdraw its forces before the Christmas period.

“No one has put forward a proposal, this issue is not on the agenda,” Peskov said of a possible ceasefire in Ukraine during the holiday season. So the fight will continue into Christmas and New Years, it seems.

Yesterday, the Kremlin spokesman said that Russia has no plans to withdraw its troops from Ukraine before Christmas. This demand was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a speech at a meeting of the Group of Seven nations on Monday.

“acknowledgment of attachment”

It is clear that peace is still a long way off for Moscow. Peskov said yesterday that before Russia and Ukraine can sit down at the negotiating table, Ukraine must recognize the regions annexed by Russia after mock referendums. “Ukrainians should take into account the reality that has developed on the ground,” he said.

The Kremlin spokesman’s comments came in response to Zelensky’s proposal to organize a “global peace summit”. With this, the Ukrainian president wants to “decide how and when the points of the Ukrainian peace equation can be implemented.”

At the end of September, Russia annexed the Ukrainian regions of Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhia and Kherson. In 2014, Moscow also annexed Crimea. The international community does not recognize the annexations. Ukraine also demands that Russia return all occupied territories.

Denis Pushlin, a senior Russian occupier in eastern Ukraine, told the RIA Novosti news agency that he wanted to “liberate Odessa and Chernihiv,” two cities far from the front line. However, Peskov softened those remarks, saying that the priority is “protection of people in the eastern regions of Luhansk and Donetsk”.
