Putin's conditions for Ukraine: neutrality and rejection of NATO - Feygin

Russian opposition politician Mark Feygin says that dictator Vladimir Putin didn't give any signals of peace with Ukraine, but rather tried to impose his conditions on it, which include the loss of sovereignty and territorial integrity

He said this in an interview with Antin Borkovskyi, host of the Studio West program on Espreso TV.

When asked about the Russian dictator's signals to the G-20, Feygin said that there were none, except for "let's negotiate on the terms we offer".

"The main, central issue of these conditions is not even the 80:20 division of the territory of Ukraine (20 is geopolitical realities, we occupied it, we held a referendum there, and annexed it to Russia), but first of all the neutral status of Ukraine, prevention of Ukraine's accession to NATO, integration into the Western community in general, and keeping it in the position it has been in for almost all 30 years, to be honest," the politician said.

According to him, Putin's intentions have not changed. He still believes that sooner or later, the whole of Ukraine will be occupied by him.

"In his speech at the G-20, you remember, he said that he regretted the tragedy of children in the Middle East, in the Gaza Strip. But he doesn't regret the children in Bucha, Mariupol or any other place, for example. And many times more children died there at his hands - not at the hands of anyone else, but at his hands. So he is certainly a master of such Jesuit rhetoric. Of course, these texts are written for him, but they mean exactly this: against the backdrop of the tragedy in Gaza - as he says, his fists are clenching, something else is clenching - there is no tragedy in Ukraine, don't exaggerate. What he calls a war is what he can afford - not a military conflict, not a special operation or any other term, but to say it like it is - because it is really a war," the oppositionist explains.

Feygin stressed that it is not necessary to attach meaning to the words of the Russian dictator: "There is only one meaning: let's negotiate, surrender, give me the territory, but first of all, in addition to the territory and demilitarisation, of course, the reduction of the Ukrainian army, the withdrawal of all weapons sent there, prohibit Ukraine from joining NATO, postpone this prospect forever, etc. And I must say that while the West had been actively refuting this and actively working towards the idea that Ukraine should be accepted into NATO, now there is some hesitation."

  • On December 6, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia aboard his plane with four fighter jets.
