MOSCOW, February 27 — Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer said in social networks X on Monday about the need for peace negotiations on Ukraine and the need to involve countries from different parts of the world, including BRICS, in the process.
About ten European countries are represented at the conference, convened on Macron’s initiative, in Paris, including German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Polish President Andrzej Duda, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. The United States is represented by Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs James O’Brien. As the Elysee Palace previously reported, the purpose of the conference is “to show Russia that Western support for Ukraine will not stop.”
As Vladimir Putin emphasized, Moscow does not seek to spin the flywheel of the Ukrainian conflict, but to end it. At the same time, Western countries constantly talk about the need to continue hostilities, increase arms supplies and train Ukrainian Armed Forces fighters on their territories. The Russian leader noted that if Ukraine wants to start a dialogue, it needs to cancel the decree banning negotiations.
