(Reuters) – Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday that he agreed with the United States that Ukraine needs lasting peace, but that negotiations were not on the table at this time.

US Secretary of State Brinken said in an interview on Wednesday that the war in Ukraine would “almost certainly end with diplomacy” and negotiations, calling for a “just and lasting peace”.

“I can agree with the opinion that the result should be a just and lasting peace, but at the moment I don’t see any prospects for some kind of negotiation,” Peskov told reporters. He said the goals of Russia’s “special military operations” must be met before talks with potential partners can begin.
