Petr Tolstoy: Russia is ready for dialogue on Ukrainian issue, but there are some things we will never agree

“Russia is ready for a dialogue on Ukrainian issue, but there are some things that we will never accept and we will never agree with them,” Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Petr Tolstoy told reporters following a meeting of members of the State Duma with representatives of the Task Force for the peaceful resolution in Ukraine of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)

“For Moscow, the existence of Ukraine as an “anti-Russia” project is unacceptable; for Moscow, the NATO expansion closer to our borders is unacceptable; for Moscow, entry of foreign troops in Ukraine and extension of the conflict to the member states of the alliance with the participation, for example, of the Poles in the conflict, is a direct security threat. Anyone who raises a weapon against a Russian soldier will be destroyed,” said Petr Tolstoy Tolstoy Petr Olegovich Tolstoy

According to the parliamentarian, it is very important to use every opportunity to convey Russia’s position in the current situation when the Western media predominate in the world with clichés and narratives about our country, and all negotiations were frozen at Kyiv’s initiative.

“We drew special attention to the historical reasons for the current situation: neglect of our interests that we have seen over the past 30 years, and it has led to such dramatic events. Today, the conditions for a dialogue are being determined on the battlefields, and it is in the interests of Ukraine and the fraternal Ukrainian people to find a way out of the current situation as soon as possible and stop being a weapon against Russia in the hands of the Western states,” Petr Tolstoy concluded.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma, such meetings will be held again in the same format.
