Kremlin Spokesperson Addresses Ukrainian Counterattack and Proposals for Easter Truce

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian army is closely following US statements about the upcoming Ukrainian counteroffensive and takes this into account when planning military operations.

Earlier on Friday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken did not rule out a counterattack by Ukrainian forces in the coming weeks.

Peskov added: “This statement is under the close supervision of the Russian army. Our military leadership carefully evaluates all relevant information and takes this into account when planning the continuation of the special operation.

And commenting on the fact that the head of the World Federation of Believers of the Old Orthodox Faith, Leonid Sevastyanov, said that Pope Francis proposed to introduce a truce in Ukraine and in new Russian regions, starting from April 9, while Catholics and Orthodox celebrate Easter and bright Easter weeks.

Peskov pointed out that the Kremlin “did not hear any statements from the Vatican regarding the Easter truce in Ukraine, but only heard them from Sevastyanov. Therefore, we see no reason to comment on the news.”

Commenting on the idea of ​​Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to destroy all nuclear weapons in the world, Peskov said that this requires unanimity, but there is no possibility of such joint agreements.
