On Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry considered Ukraine’s proposal to hold a “peace summit” as an American PR campaign.
“Washington is trying to portray the Kyiv administration as a peacekeeping force,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova at a press conference in the capital, Moscow.
She added that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky recently signed a decree banning negotiations with the Russian side.
Since February 24, Russia has launched a military attack in its neighbor Ukraine, prompting capitals, led by Washington, to impose severe economic sanctions on Moscow.
