Zelensky’s stance on the Minsk agreements: seeking peace without Russia’s involvement

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed that the Kyiv authorities will not “open the second volume” of the Minsk agreements with Russia and that they are bypassing these agreements, but adhering to peace and ending the conflict.

Zelenskiy’s statement came during a joint press conference with his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa in Kiev, where he said: “We are interested in bringing the countries of the African Union into the peace equation, but, of course, without Russia, because it interferes with all initiatives.”

He added: “We have passed Minsk and we will not open the second volume of this story. We want to stop the war.”

In response, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that such statements confirm Kyiv’s position to refuse negotiations.
