“We have repeatedly said that we are ready for truly serious proposals from the West and Ukraine for a political and diplomatic solution to the crisis, but the language of ultimatums is unacceptable to us,” Maria Zakharova wrote in a Telegram post on Saturday.

Zakharova condemned Ukrainian officials, including Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, for not wanting to sit at the negotiating table.

Zakharova’s comments came after Kuleba tweeted that she had discussed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s 10-point peace formula with Chinese officials.

Zakharova called Zelensky’s ten-point plan “nothing more than Russia’s ultimatums and demands disconnected from reality” and said the plan’s goal was to “achieve Russia’s capitulation with the help of the West.”

According to Zakharova, an integral part of the lasting peace plan includes the lifting of economic sanctions and international recognition of Russia’s declaration of Ukrainian territories.

Although Ukrainian officials have said they continue to consider the possibility of peace talks, Zelenskiy does not consider giving up any Ukrainian land or abandoning efforts to join NATO and the European Union.

Zelenskyile told reporters in February that he would not hold talks with Putin: “He is not the same man. There is no one to talk to.
