Kiev’s terms for talks ‘unrealistic’ – Moscow
The longer Ukraine rejects negotiations, the harder it’ll be to find common ground, the Russian FM has warned
Kiev’s conditions for the commencement of peace talks with Moscow are “unrealistic and inadequate,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has told journalists at the G20 summit. Moscow is not refusing to negotiate, he added.

Lavrov, who is representing Russia at the high-profile gathering on the Indonesian island of Bali, said he had a brief conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron earlier on Tuesday. During this exchange, the French leader “confirmed his willingness to continue contacts with Russian President Vladimir Putin to find some agreements that would allow this whole situation to be settled, as he put it,” Lavrov said in a comment to RT’s correspondent.

“I reminded [Macron] that all the problems are on the Ukrainian side, which categorically refuses any talks and puts forward conditions that are invariably unrealistic and inadequate, considering the situation,” the foreign minister said.

Commenting on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s video address to the G20 summit, Lavrov said it was full of “militant, Russophobic and aggressive rhetoric.”

“I’ve made only one conclusion from his speech: that he’s still not listening to any advice from the West,” the Russian diplomat said.

Lavrov was likely referring to recent reports that Washington has been privately pushing Kiev to drop its uncompromising rejection of the peace process with Moscow. Also, last week, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, suggested that a Ukrainian victory may not be achievable militarily and that winter could provide an opportunity to begin talks with Russia.

“We’ve repeatedly, through the statements of our president, confirmed that we don’t refuse negotiations, if anyone does so, it’s Ukraine. And the longer it refuses to talk, the more difficult it’ll be to find common ground,” Lavrov stated.

In his video address earlier on Tuesday, Zelensky told the G20 leaders that he was “convinced now is the time when the Russian destructive war must and can be stopped.”

While signaling Ukraine’s willingness to talk, he also stated that his country “shouldn’t be offered compromises with its sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence” to achieve peace.

Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said Zelensky’s address “absolutely confirms” the unwillingness of Kiev to look for a settlement of the conflict at the negotiating table.

US goal is to destroy Russia – security chief
Washington wants to use Ukraine to damage Russia, Nikolay Patrushev says
The US wants to weaken and destroy Russia, and is using Ukraine as a “battering ram” to achieve that goal, the secretary of Russia’s national Security Council has warned.

While Washington declares Russia “a source of instability”, it also fosters “anti-Russian alliances, builds up military strength, deploys NATO forces at our border,” Nikolay Patrushev said on Tuesday during a government meeting.

“The puppet Kiev regime, which took power through a coup that was supported by [the US and its closest allies], is being used as a battering ram against Russia,” Patrushev added, as quoted by TASS news agency. “The US goal is to weaken, disunite and ultimately destroy our nation.”

The official claimed Washington will stop at nothing to achieve its “selfish goals” aimed at global supremacy and is pushing the world “towards a global war” through policies that pit other nations against each other.

Patrushev made the remarks during a meeting on Russian domestic security, which he chaired in the city of Bryansk. He called for possible safety lapses at strategic sites to be fixed, and said Ukrainian saboteurs pose an increasing threat to Russia and its people.

“Attempts to infiltrate Russian territory by members of radical and extremist structures, who seek to conduct sabotage activities and terrorist attacks, have significantly increased,” he stated. Transport and energy sites are of particular interest for would-be plotters, he stressed.

Patrushev added that Russian law enforcement agencies have thwarted 28 terrorism-related crimes this year, including nine attempted acts of sabotage.


ニコライ・パトルシェフ(Nikolay Patrushev)は火曜日、政府の会議で次のように述べた。「アメリカはロシアを『不安定要因』と宣言する一方で、『反ロシア同盟』を育て、軍事力を強化し、NATO軍を国境に配置している」。

White House divided on pushing for peace in Ukraine – NYT

White House divided on pushing for peace in Ukraine – NYT
A top US general reportedly believes negotiations would allow Kiev to “cement gains” while other officials think it’s too soon for diplomacy
The US government is divided on whether to pressure Ukraine into initiating peace talks with Russia, with some officials arguing that it won’t get better terms in the future, the New York Times reported on Thursday, citing sources.

According to White House officials interviewed by the outlet, Gen. Mark Milley, who heads the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated during internal meetings that Kiev’s forces had achieved all that they may reasonably expect before winter sets in and “should try to cement their gains at the bargaining table” with Russia.

Milley was apparently referring to Moscow’s recent decision to withdraw its troops from the right bank of the Dnieper River, including the city of Kherson, a move made to preserve the lives of Russian soldiers.

However, other senior officials are said to oppose Milley’s line of thinking, arguing that neither Moscow nor Kiev is ready for talks now, while any lull in the fighting would allow Russia to regroup. Although they believe that the conflict will eventually be settled via diplomacy, the consensus is that the moment for talks “is not ripe,” and the US shouldn’t be seen as trying to hold Kiev back while it “has momentum.”

The report comes as US President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he does not “think that the conflict will be resolved until [Russian President Vladimir] Putin gets out of Ukraine."

The same day, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan maintained that Washington “is not pressuring Ukraine” into any talks with Russia, insisting that it is “consulting” Kiev as a partner and providing it with various forms of support.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that while it is not holding any talks with the US over Ukraine, it remains open to a diplomatic engagement with Kiev. However, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has set out conditions for any diplomatic engagement, which include the “restoration of [Ukraine’s] territorial integrity,” “compensation for all war damage” and “punishment of every war criminal.”

Zelensky earlier signed a decree prohibiting any negotiations with Putin, suggesting that Kiev would only talk to Russia when it has a different president.

ホワイトハウス、ウクライナの和平推進で意見が分かれる - NYT




この報告は、ジョー・バイデン米大統領が木曜日に、"(ロシアのウラジーミル)プーチン大統領がウクライナから退去するまで紛争は解決されないと思う "と述べたことによる。




@ ウクライナは将来的に良い条件を得られない。・・・これはその通りでしょう。
A キエフ軍は冬が来る前に合理的に期待できることはすべて達成した・・・やることはやったが、その結果が決定的な劣勢です。冬が来れば劣勢はさらに強まるでしょう。
B ロシアとの交渉のテーブルで得たものを「固めるよう試みるべき・・・ケルソンをウクライナ配下に戻すことを言っているようです。ですが、ロシアはケルソンを渡すつもりはありません。そんなことをしたらロシア国内とケルソンの住民から猛烈な批判が出ます。
C (和平交渉の開始で)戦闘が小康状態になればロシアが再編成することができる・・・ケルソンからの撤退も軍の再編成の一環です。追加動員の兵士が訓練を終えて配置されますから、ロシア軍の布陣はさらに強力になります。
D 米国はキエフが「勢いがある」間に引き止めようとしていると見られるべきではない・・・ウクライナと近いレベルになるほどウクライナがまだ戦うつもりなのに戦闘継続をあきらめさせることは難しいでしょう。協力してきたNATO同盟国がどう見るかという問題に加えてウクライナが有利な和平条件を求めて米軍に要求を出すでしょう。
E ゼレンスキー大統領は、外交的関与の条件として、「(ウクライナの)領土の完全性の回復」、「すべての戦争被害の補償」、「すべての戦争犯罪者の処罰」などを掲げている・・・こんな要求は論外でテーブルに上ることもありません。
F 中間選挙の結果がどうなろうと、ウクライナ戦争に対する米国の関与について米国内での論議が高まるのは必至。マーク・ミリー以下の論議はそれに備えたものでもあるでしょう。
G 米国が資金武器の支援を絞れば、ウクライナの軍は活動低下、縮小に追い込まれます。しかし、共和党が選挙に勝ってもすぐに思い切った措置をとることはできないでしょう。ウクライナ戦争は一貫して米国が仕掛けてきたものであり、ゼレンスキー政権はそれゆえに無理に無理を重ね、西側に知られてはならないことをやつてきました。


Top US general’s comments on peace talks angered Ukraine – Politico
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff urged Kiev “to seize the moment” for diplomacy with Russia
The administration of US President Joe Biden is attempting to reassure Ukraine that it’s not pressing Kiev into any peace talks with Moscow after a top US general alluded to “a window” for a diplomatic solution to the conflict, Politico reported on Monday, citing sources. According to the outlet, his comments “angered” Ukrainian officials.

Washington is signaling to Kiev that any winter lull in fighting “doesn’t mean talks should happen imminently,” while vowing to continue supporting the country militarily, Ukrainian and US officials interviewed by Politico said.

Ukrainian concerns that the US could push Kiev into seeking a peace settlement with Moscow were fueled by recent comments by General Mark Milley, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said Ukraine could not achieve a military victory while noting that winter may present an opportunity for diplomatic engagement. “When there’s an opportunity to negotiate, when peace can be achieved, seize it. Seize the moment,” he stated.

Russia and the US held high-level talks in Ankara on Monday. The White House later insisted that any “settlement of the war in Ukraine” was not on the table, suggesting that negotiations revolved around nuclear weapons and US citizens in Russian custody, while Moscow has refused to disclose what the sides had talked about.

According to US officials, Washington's mixed messaging on a diplomatic solution to the Ukraine conflict is “straining… [the] relationship” between Washington and Kiev. This is further underscored by an emerging rift between US officials, with some reportedly arguing that it is too soon for peace talks while others believe winter presents a chance for diplomacy. Against this backdrop, Milley's comments are said to have “angered” Ukrainian officials.

The latter group has been pressing their counterparts in Washington to consider this opportunity “more seriously,” but they have so far failed to persuade US President Joe Biden and many members of his administration, the report says.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that it would not rule out talks with Kiev, accusing Ukraine of a lack of engagement. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has set out conditions for any negotiations with Russia, which include the “restoration of [Ukraine’s] territorial integrity,” “compensation for all war damage,” and “punishment of every war criminal.”

In October, he also signed a decree banning any negotiations with President Vladimir Putin.

In the early days of the conflict, Kiev had struck a different tone, sending a team of negotiators to Istanbul in March to discuss a settlement with Russia. Later, however, it abruptly withdrew from these talks, allegedly due to the efforts of former UK prime minister Boris Johnson. Last month, Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov indicated that any future talks with Ukraine alone were unlikely to succeed, as any agreement between the two countries would be “instantly canceled upon orders” from the West.

Japanese firms told to stick with Russian LNG project – media
Japanese authorities believe stakes in Sakhalin-2 will help ensure continued gas supplies
The Japanese government has called on Mitsubishi and Mitsui to keep their shares in the Sakhalin-2 Liquefied Natural Gas project after its transfer to a Russian operator, The Nikkei reported on Saturday.

“The companies have shares [in Sakhalin-2], so we agreed that they should hold them tight,” Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Koichi Hagiuda told reporters after meeting with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, as cited by the news outlet.

Sakhalin-2 produces 10 million tons of LNG per year, and about 60% of the project's output is exported to Japan. On June 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which Sakhalin-2 operator Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, in which Japan’s conglomerates Mitsui and Mitsubishi own 12.5% and 10%, respectively, becomes the property of a company that will be created by the Russian government.

According to The Nikkei, Tokyo can continue to buy gas without participating in the project under its new operator, as long as existing contracts are in place. However, there is a possibility of a disruption in supplies, and Japanese authorities believe that by retaining their stakes in the project, Mitsui and Mitsubishi could ensure the continued flow of Russian LNG to the country. At the same time, the newspaper notes that “there is no guarantee that the new operator will continue to reliably supply LNG to Japan,” even if Mitsubishi and Mitsui remain among the shareholders.

The current shareholders of Sakhalin Energy must agree within a month to receive a stake in a new LLC. If they refuse, the government will evaluate their shares and sell them to a Russian legal entity. In addition to Japanese companies, Sakhalin Energy's shareholders include Shell (around 27.5%) and Gazprom (around 50%). The latter will receive a share in the new operating company proportional to its current holdings. Shell, however, announced in February that it would withdraw from the project.

Mitsubishi and Mitsui said they will make a final decision regarding their participation in the project when Russia clarifies the terms, including the timing of the implementation of Putin’s decree, and investment conditions.

Earlier, the Russian president’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said that there were no grounds for stopping LNG supplies to Japan in connection with Putin’s new decree on Sakhalin-2.

Ukrainian top diplomat comments on possible meeting with Russian FM
President Vladimir Zelensky had earlier said Kiev would be ready to talk to “a different Russia”
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said he would “carefully consider” meeting his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov should the latter “ask” for such talks. The diplomat made the remarks to the media on the sidelines of the summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), currently ongoing in Cambodia.

“He did not ask for a meeting, as is customary in diplomacy. If he does so, we will carefully consider his request, taking into account all aspects and realities of the current situation,” Kuleba stated, without elaborating if Kiev would actually agree to hold such a meeting, should Moscow ever send a request.

Ukraine has repeatedly sent mixed signals about the prospects of negotiating with Russia in an attempt to put an end to the ongoing conflict between the two nations. President Vladimir Zelensky had earlier said Kiev had not “closed the door” for such talks, while reiterating his refusal to negotiate with his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin.

“I said we would be ready to talk to Russia, but with a different Russia. One that is truly ready for peace. One that is ready to recognize that they are occupiers,” Zelensky told CNN.

Prior to that, Zelensky called on world leaders “to force Russia into real peace negotiations,” rolling out a list of conditions, ranging from the return of territory claimed by Kiev to financial reparations from Moscow. The Ukrainian president said previously that the only way to achieve such territorial goals may be to defeat Russia militarily.

The Russian stance on talks, however, remains unchanged, with Moscow repeatedly stating it is ready to negotiate without any preconditions. “We are still open to negotiations, we have never refused them, we are ready to conduct them,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

At the same time, Moscow suggested that Kiev is unable to act independently and thus lacks the ability to hold meaningful talks. On Friday, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that Kiev had severed all earlier negotiations “on command of its Western handlers,” referring to talks held in the early stages of the conflict. These efforts culminated in a meeting hosted by Türkiye in Istanbul but ultimately failed to yield any practical result.

Damage to key dam from Ukrainian strikes revealed
It will take at least a year to repair the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam in Russia’s Kherson Region, a local official says
The Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam in Russia’s Kherson Region suffered “colossal” damage during attacks by Ukrainian forces, a local official has said.

The key infrastructure, located on the Dnieper River upstream from the city of Kherson, can still be repaired, but it will require some time, Vladimir Leontyev, the mayor of Novaya Kakhovka, told TASS on Sunday.

“I think with the use of modern technologies it can be repaired quite quickly. ‘Quite quickly’ in universal terms. We’re not talking about a few months, of course. It’ll take a year or more,” Leontyev said, adding that it was up to the experts to set the exact terms.

In another interview with Rossiya 24 channel, Leontyev said the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam “keeps standing and even operating” despite the Ukrainian attacks. “But in such circumstances we would likely be forced to conserve it, to our huge regret,” he pointed out.

In recent weeks, Russia has blamed Ukraine for launching numerous strikes on the dam with the use of US-supplied HIMARS multiple rocket launch systems.

Moscow insisted that Kiev was attacking the facility in an attempt to cause major flooding in the Kherson area. The Ukrainian authorities have denied those accusations, claiming that Russia was itself planning to destroy the dam in a false-flag operation.
