Sergey Aksyonov: negotiations with Ukraine on the status of Crimea are useless, the issue is closed forever This was stated by the head of the region Sergey Aksenov to RIA Novosti.
“Our leader said clearly, the issue of Crimea is unambiguously closed once and for all. My personal opinion as a person, as a citizen: all negotiations (with Kyiv. — RBC) are useless. They are controlled entirely from abroad, but today we understand that it is not Ukraine or Ukrainians who are resisting us. This is the USA, this is NATO, — said the head of the republic.
According to the politician, at the moment the situation on the peninsula is assessed as stable.
In early March, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed Kyiv's readiness to find a compromise on the status of Crimea, the DPR and LPR, while he believes that the opinion of people who want to be part of Ukraine should be taken into account. The Kremlin, in response to his words, said that the Russian position is “well known”; and “repeatedly brought to the attention of the Ukrainian side, and to the telephone interlocutors of the Russian president.” “As for the Crimea” this is a Russian region, it must be recognized de facto and de jure, — said the press secretary of the head of the Russian state Dmitry Peskov.
Earlier, at the end of March, face-to-face talks were held between the Ukrainian and Russian delegations and Turkey. The head of the Russian delegation, Vladimir Medinsky, said that Kyiv had submitted to Moscow proposals for a peace treaty, in particular, on the neutral and non-nuclear status of the country. In exchange for this, the Ukrainian side seeks the provision of international security guarantees. Ukraine assured that it would not dispute the ownership of Crimea and the republics of Donbass by force, and proposed to resolve the issue of Crimea at bilateral negotiations within 15 years, and the issue of Donbas— at a meeting of heads of state.
