Peskov Blames Huge Russian Bombing Campaigns On Ukraine’s Negotiating Position: Speaking on Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov attempted to shift blame for Russia’s recent missile and drone strike bombardment of Ukrainian cities on Kyiv. The top Kremlin official claimed that the “special military operation” would never have happened if Ukraine had been willing to negotiate.

“First they negotiate, then they refuse to negotiate, then they pass a law that prohibits any kind of negotiations, then they say they want negotiations, but public ones,” Peskov complained, referencing Kyiv’s refusal to negotiate until Russian President Vladimir Putin is removed from power.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also recently insisted that negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow, should they restart, should be entirely public given that Russia is “waging a public war.”

The Kremlin also accused Kyiv of shifting the goalposts regarding peace talks, and Peskov said that he could not imagine returning to the negotiating table with Ukraine.

Peskov made similar comments on Tuesday, issuing a statement insisting that there would be no “Minsk 3” deal to bring an end to the fighting. It followed comments from the Ukrainian president during a virtual address at the G-20 summit in Bali, Indonesia. He also ruled out a third “Minsk agreement,” a ceasefire deal between the two countries in the contested Donbas region of Ukraine.

“We will not allow Russia to wait, build up its forces, and then start a new series of terror and global destabilization. There will be no Minsk 3, which Russia will violate immediately after the agreement,” Zelenskyy told the summit, prompting Peskov to tell Russia’s state-run RIA Novosti news agency that he believes Kyiv is “absolutely” unwilling to negotiate.

Turkey Keeps pushing for Peace Talks

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, one of the loudest proponents of diplomacy between Russia and Ukraine, has continued his push for the two countries to resolve the conflict through peace negotiations. Over the weekend, Erdogan was cited by the Turkish press as remaining committed to facilitating peace dialogue between the two countries.

President Erdogan also accused the United States and other NATO Allies of purposely provoking Moscow, rather than seeking a solution to the conflict.

“The West, and especially the U.S., is attacking Russia seemingly endlessly,” Erdogan said.

The Turkish president stopped short of providing specific examples of how the West is provoking Moscow, though he may have been referencing the constant flow of weapons and military aid to Ukraine, as well as statements from some Western leaders – including White House officials – committing to the destruction of Russia is a global power.

    Russia is doing the RIGHT thing; turning ukros’ vital infrastructure to rubble as retribution for the really dumb pigheadedness behavior demonstrated by ukro neo-nazi boss zekenskiyy prior to Feb 24 2022.

    Zekenskiyy was eager beaver to join both NATO & EU, even though his forces (aided by CIA operatives) were busily hammering the Donbass natives using modern 21st century trench warfare.

    In Sept and again in November 2021, Putin warned that Ukraine joining NATO represented the crossing of a RED LINE, or splashing across the Rubicon for Russia.

    But Biden and stoltenberg were encouraging zekenskiyy, with their dogbarking at Russia.

    Biden especially had a vindictive knife to grind against Putin, calling him ‘killer’ even though Putin was never responsible for the one million plus covid deaths in America.

    Biden was particularly pissed off at alleged Russian interference and suspected Russian disinformation in the 2020 US presidential contest.

    He sent extra troops to Europe and air force aircraft to NATO bases and got the military to do provocative war drills, showing the finger while lambasting Putin even though it was the ukros who were killing ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine.

    When on Feb 21 2022, Putin recognized luhansk and Donetsk as independent statelets, Biden was so small-minded enough to immediately sign an order forbidding US companies to operate there, a needless and headless & totally useless gesture. On 24 feb, Russia began its ‘special operation’ in response to biden’s extremely stupid middle finger provocation.

    Meanwhile, Biden was asserting himself in Asia, neglecting the looming war cloud in Europe and its threat to peace, since it heralded the coming of his highly desirable proxy war against Putin.

    Biden waged (& now still waging) war against prc companies even though it was xi jinping who allowed covid to escape to America, not those companies Biden was trying to crush.

    Thus, in a nutshell, it is old haggardedly diseased Biden, not Putin who’s c-r-a-z-y and who’s responsible for ukros’ suffering right now.

    Hell’s waiting for old joe !

    Violating the Minsk Agreement…shelling ethnic Russians….

    What do you expect Russia to do when the international community shrugged as Neo-Nazis burned Russians alive? Zelensky is a western puppet so they have access to cheap lithium and other materials they need for their green climate scam, shelter their illicit bio labs and launder tax payer money they shady companies

    Who funded the democrats mid term elections? Soros and Ukraine (via FTX and the US tax payers)

    The democrats have been conducting proxy wars for 2 decades in order to fund raise using loose money that could be funneled back to them effectively laundered. Under Obama the proxy wars increased from 2 to 7. Every time one ends another starts. Putin had a peace deal in April and England pressured Zelenskyy to keep fighting.

    Ukrainian people are being used as cannon fodder for the globalists while the ignorant citizens put “pray for Ukraine 🇺🇦 ” everywhere like gullible fuktards.

    Donkeys all of them
