President Vladimir Putin believes that it is "not individual people but the policies they conduct that deserve support"
Axar.az reports citing TASS that Russia will support any efforts for achieving peace in Ukraine, but it is important to see to what degree the new authorities in Kyiv are capable of translating into reality their own promises made to the Ukrainian people, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the CIS summit in Ashgabat. A transcript of his statement was published on the Kremlin’s website.
"It goes without saying that it is essential to support any efforts for achieving peace in southeastern Ukraine. Certainly, we will be doing that," Putin said. In reply to Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko’s call for supporting the new Ukrainian authorities Putin said that "it is necessary to support not so many individual politicians as a policy geared to achieving peace."
In this connection, he remarked that Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky was unable to enforce the pullback of Ukrainian forces within the framework of the disengagement in Zolotoye and Petrovskoye in Donbas.
"Political will has to be displayed here. Therefore, I believe that it is not individual people but the policies they conduct that deserve support," he concluded.
