This is stated by the Canadian Forces’ Intelligence on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.
“Russia has continually claimed that it is open to negotiations to end its war in Ukraine. Based on our analysis, Russia continues to demonstrate a commitment to its maximalist war aims, which is at odds with its professed openness to a negotiated settlement to the conflict,” Canada’s intelligence reports.
A striking example proving this is Russia insisting on the preservation of four temporarily occupied regions of Ukraine as part of the Russian Federation as a “precondition to any peace agreement.”
"Russia knows its preconditions are a non-starter for Ukraine, indicating Russia is currently unwilling to negotiate a good-faith peace agreement," the Canadian Forces noted.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Minister for Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba of Ukraine stated that any talks with Russia must be preceded by a complete restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity.
