Sergey Lavrov made the statement at the UN General Assembly. According to the foreign minister, Russia is ready for negotiations on Ukraine, but will not consider any proposals for a ceasefire.
"Now, when we are told about negotiations, Putin commented on it. He said very clearly: yes, we are ready for negotiations. But we will not consider any ceasefire proposals. We have already considered it once, but you deceived us," says Lavrov.
