Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu says that Russia remains ready for political discussions on the settlement of the war against Ukraine and further coexistence with the West "on a realistic basis"

This was reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense, citing the head of the agency, Sergei Shoigu, during a speech on Monday, October 30, at the 10th Beijing Xiangshan Forum.

"If the necessary conditions are created, we remain ready for political discussions on a realistic basis - both on the post-conflict settlement of the Ukrainian crisis and on the parameters of further coexistence with the West in general," Shoigu said.

In particular, he emphasized the importance of "equal relations" between the nuclear powers - permanent members of the UN Security Council.

"At the same time," said the minister, "it is important to ensure equal relations between all nuclear powers - permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC), which bear a special responsibility for maintaining peace and global stability.”  

Russia believes that in order to restore the world order, it is necessary to unite the efforts of all interested countries.

"To create a fair, multipolar world order, we need to update the international security architecture and make it more sustainable. To do this, it is necessary to combine the efforts of all interested countries," Shoigu said.

  • On September 26, at a meeting with generals, Shoigu said that the war with Ukraine was planned to last at least until 2025.
