Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the delegation of Chinese diplomats who visited Ukraine, Russia and EU countries did not demand the transfer of the occupied Ukrainian territories to Russia.
Information that this requirement is contained in the PRC peace plan was published earlier by the Wall Street Journal, citing diplomats from EU countries.
Kuleba conducted a video broadcast on his Facebook account, during which he said that he had contacted his colleagues in these states, and none of them confirmed that such versions of the end of the war were even simply voiced during the negotiation process.
“We control the process. No one will do anything against us behind Ukraine’s back, because we have built trusting relationships with all key partners.”
Now the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is on a diplomatic tour of African countries as part of the reset of his country's relations with Africa. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about its necessity .
Kuleba stressed that his country continues to engage in dialogue with China on the basis of three basic principles: respect for the territorial integrity of Ukraine, the absence of initiatives involving territorial concessions from Ukraine, and the inadmissibility of freezing the conflict.
Chinese Special Representative Li Hui arrived in Moscow on May 26, where he held talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Details of the negotiations were not disclosed, but Lavrov thanked Li Hui for his "balanced position."
Later, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Mikhail Galuzin, in an interview with TASS, listed the requirements of the Russian Federation for Ukraine to achieve peace. According to him, first of all, Ukraine should stop hostilities, and Western countries should stop supplying weapons. The Russian Federation also demands that Ukraine refrain from joining the EU and NATO and consolidate “at the legislative level” the status of the Russian language as the state language.
