Kyiv is ready for any format of talks for the international settlement of the situation in the country, but it demands Russia should immediately stop interfering in the country’s internal affairs and de-escalate the situation, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has said.

“Ukraine is ready for an international settlement and a dialogue in formats that can yield practical results within in a clearly defined period of time,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement released on Tuesday.

The minister stressed that Ukraine demands Russia immediately stop interfering in the internal affairs of the country and fulfill its formal obligations to de-escalate the situation.

According to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, “the fundamental elements of the settlement should be the cessation of the aggression, rhetoric and subversive actions of the Russian Federation against our state, Russia’s giving up its expansionist plans, which pose a direct threat to all neighboring states and the international peace and security, and the withdrawal of Russian armed forces from [next to] Ukraine’s borders and from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.”

The Foreign Ministry stressed that the issues related to the sovereign right of Ukrainian people to carry out their internal and external policies cannot be the subject of the negotiations.

“We are warning the Russian side against its obsessive attempts to invent its own constitution for Ukraine. These intentions have nothing to do with the interests of our citizens. They reflect the plan of occupation and stagnation,” the Foreign Ministry said.
