"Demilitarization" of a non-existent plant, for which Europe "pays the bills" and who is preparing "referendums": what Peskov has been talking about lately
The dialogue between Ukraine and Russia mostly takes place exclusively in the media, and the Kremlin's position is usually voiced by Dmitry Peskov.
After several unsuccessful rounds of negotiations at the beginning of the war in Ukraine, representatives of the delegation of our state and the Russian Federation officially announced the suspension of the peace process. Thus, since May of this year, the so-called dialogue between the leaders of the two states and representatives of the political elite occurs only in the media plane. Except, perhaps, humanitarian component и grain export negotiationscarried out through intermediaries.
There is no Bayraktar production plant yet, but "demilitarization" will be
The last days have been especially rich in "exchanges of courtesies" between Ukrainian and Russian politicians. So, one of the latest reactions The Kremlin concerned information that the Turkish company Baykar registered in Ukraine and acquired a land plot for the construction of the plant for the production of shock unmanned vehicles Bayraktar.
In particular, as reported RBC-Ukraine Ambassador of Ukraine to Turkey Vasily Bodnar, the company is already developed project documentation and on a significant part of the models that will be produced at this plant will be components of Ukrainian production. In addition, just a week ago, the government approved bilateral agreement on the construction of the plant and sent it to Parliament for ratification.
In turn, the press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, when asked to comment on such plans at a briefing, stated that if in Ukraine decide to build a factory for the production of Turkish Bayraktar drones, this enterprise will immediately fall "under demilitarization" and will only bring new suffering to Ukrainians.
"The fact of creating such an object there, of course, immediately falls under the topic of demilitarization - this must be understood ... This will only prolong the suffering of Ukrainians, but will not help to avoid what is the goal of a special military operation." - said the speaker of the Kremlin.
Irrationality in thinking "rolls over"
Another violent reaction of Putin's press secretary was to the statement of the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky that West must make everyone Russians return to Russia и "to live in their own world until they change their philosophy." Head of state in an interview The Washington Post noted that the ban on entry would be a more serious step than all previously imposed sanctions, and would also prove to be "the only way to influence Putin."
What did the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that the irrationality in the thinking of the Ukrainian leaders "goes wild".
"This can only be treated negatively. Any such proposals have no prospects. Their scent is also not very good"Peskov said.
According to him, Zelensky should understand that those who try to punish Russia country Europe already "they are paying their bills and soon their citizens will wonder why they should pay for Zelensky's whims"
In addition, Peskov noted that Russia I have already heard similar statements from European states 80 years ago.
"I think that over time, common sense will manifest itself, and those who said this will come to their senses", — said the speaker of the Kremlin
I am not me and the referendum is not mine
Perhaps, to put it mildly, Peskov’s strangest statement today can be considered the answer to the fact that Vladimir Zelensky promised in his evening address finally close the topic of negotiations with Russia, if Russia to hold pseudo-referenda in the occupied territories of Ukraine.
"The position of our state remains the same as it was before: we will not give up anything of ours. And if the occupiers follow the path of these pseudo-referendums, then they will close for themselves any possibility of negotiations with Ukraine and the free world, which the Russian side will definitely need at some point "- said the President of Ukraine
He also warned that all who will help the Russians somehow realize this intention, they will answer to Ukraine.
Peskov retorted, stating that this Russia is not preparing to hold referendums in the regions of Ukraine occupied by Russian troops, and themselves locals. And therefore, according to Peskov, the warning of the President of Ukraine is at the wrong address.
"Here you need to understand who Mr. Zelensky is addressing with this statement. To the citizens of Ukraine in the regions mentioned? Or to the citizens of Russia? If to the leadership of Russia, then in this case we are the wrong address", - he said
Putin's spokesman added that Zelensky should contact the Ukrainians and find out why "Among them there are a lot of those who do not want to live in his country."
Where is "homework"? Let's diary
Putin's press secretary also did not miss the opportunity to once again speak out about the hypothetical peace talks между Ukraine and Russia.
He noted that despite repeated proposals Turkey regarding the organization of peace talks, a meeting Zelensky and Putin impossible without doing Ukraine "homework". And so far, after the departure of Ukraine "from the radar" peace process there is no movement in this direction.
Earlier we wrote that, according to the head of the Office of the President Mikhail Podoliak Ukraine's "correct negotiating position" is long-range artillery, air defense, attack drones and armored vehicles.
