The former Ukrainian prime minister assessed the prospects for negotiations between Putin and Zelensky

41

Recently, the President of Ukraine made a statement about his readiness to discuss any issues with his Russian counterpart, including the status of Donbass and the rights of the Russian-speaking population of the country to use their native language. Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov assessed the prospects for such negotiations between Putin and Zelensky.

The agency reports RIA News.

Azarov thinks that it makes no sense to hold a meeting of the heads of the two states, since it will not be productive. He believes that it is quite possible to reach any agreements with the Kiev authorities, but there are doubts about their implementation. The fact is that Zelensky has no real levers of influence on the Ukrainian nationalist armed formations, which may refuse to comply with his orders.

Negotiate with those people who have real power, are able to make sane decisions, are able to implement them

- says the ex-premier.

Azarov sees the point for Moscow to negotiate only with those people who have real tools to implement the agreements reached.

Despite this, the former Ukrainian high-ranking official welcomes any negotiations that give even the slightest chance to alleviate the situation of the people of Ukraine. In particular, he leaves no hope that the decision to create humanitarian corridors for the evacuation of civilians from cities surrounded by Russian troops, adopted at a meeting of delegations from Moscow and Kyiv in Belarus, will be implemented.

    These negotiations are strange. And from our side and from their side, not even third parties. What can they agree on? Especially if Peskov said that there was no talk of signing any documents.

      ???.... Yes, there is Arakhamia and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, we have a deputy. Minister of Defense ... sort of like "people of power."

        In Russia, maybe "people of power", in Ukraine - hostage representatives pretending that power exists. No one will follow her orders. At this point, it is necessary to conduct negotiations with each regiment, detachment. With bandits - it is unlikely to succeed. Unless they promise to send them to Poland without the right to return.

        Well, unfortunately, there are no representatives of the United States and NATO there.
        There really is no one to negotiate with, but it’s also impossible not to talk, if at least one exit corridor from the cities starts to work, the lives of at least a few people are saved, then we can assume that everything is not in vain, moreover, we can even assume that the goal of the negotiations has been achieved in the main .

      With the terrorists in Syria, it was possible to agree on corridors for the withdrawal of the civilian population. But there were mostly mercenaries, people just had to give all the money that the terrorists would release. With the Nazis, of course, it will be more difficult. But they also have control.

      in order to convey your conditions to the Ukrainian side, it is enough for Russia to send a courier.
      Russia has no room for bargaining.
      the Ukrainian authorities do not have the competence to bargain.

      the rest is just to maintain status.

          Along the way, all Zelensky’s power today is limited by the space of the bunker in which he sits out, and then there are doubts about his competence as a president and commander-in-chief, since a bunker term in fact can be just detention, so that this scarecrow is not lost on open spaces of neighboring countries and did not break off the money laundering scheme. Formally, it is for him that mattresses and their accomplices are now allocating some amounts in millions, which almost certainly go in reverse and are returned to certain groups of mattresses fed from the war on a shuttle basis. In Ukraine, the national bank probably only fixes the receipt of these babos and transfers them back, within a couple of three hours. There will be no Ze, there will be no "guarantor" under which to allocate money. A dummy with which there is nothing to talk about at all.

      Only purely technical points: hum. corridors, exchange of prisoners, etc. But, judging by the throwing of the dill side, they are not even authorized to resolve such issues. As a result, it turns out that this event shows the following: the Russian Federation is ready for dialogue, but it would be with whom. request And since there is no longer anyone to talk to, we move on - the tank biathlon team is not worth losing momentum on the headmistress. yes

      Azarov is a big smart girl! But he can't be president. But the Prime Minister - yes! All the same, even during the time of Yanukovych, he "pulled out" the economy. Probably, when restoring the Ruins, his experience and knowledge will be very useful.

        Henry, during the premiership of your god Azarov, two of my former colleagues left Kyiv for Russia forever. He is all so smart and private, well, exactly like you, but in fact, a complete disregard for the opening of all sorts of "circles" and sections where the Nazis gathered en masse. According to those who left, nationalism was gaining strength literally before our eyes! People didn’t want to learn the Ukrainian language even then, and they abandoned Ukrainian citizenship forever! And, by the way, look in the mirror, there you will definitely see zombies!

          You forget that Azarov was not the president, but only the prime minister. He only had economic questions. The military department, security, education, foreign relations - were separate from him, since the powers were completely divided and they were squandered in favor of the opposition by Yanukovych, on the advice of his "adviser" Anna German. It was complete idiocy, but there is no need to drag Azarov here.

    What's the point??? Country 404 is not negotiable. Minsk-2 was signed in 2015, and consisted of 13 points. How many of them were completed by the Ukrainian side? 0 [in words: zero, zero, zilch, nothing]. If Ukraine had fulfilled its obligations, there would have been no need for Operation Z. Well, the truth would not have been the Ukraine that we know, but there would have been something more reasonably arranged.

    Look at the drunk (or stoned) Zelensky. What is on the sober mind, the drunk on the tongue. Suddenly repeat switched to Russian: apparently, drunken brains are not able to communicate in a non-native language.
    Then (not verbatim): it is impossible to speak with them (the negotiating group of the Russian Federation) - they know the answers to all our questions in advance. Complains. They are not able to understand that the simplest organisms with their wishes and questions have already calculated a dozen moves ahead.
    Azarov previously gave the impression of being the most sane of the current caudles at that time.

    There is no sense in such negotiations, but they are held to reassure the West - "we are doing everything democratically with a government recognized by the world community." Although everyone understands that this government is an ordinary empty shell.

      There is no leadership in Ukraine now - neither good nor bad. The President and the government do not own the situation and no longer have the levers of control.

      And negotiations are needed only so that we are not reproached for refusing to negotiate.

          I did not write about troops and groups. I'm talking about the fact that the current Ukrainian leadership no longer has power over either the army or anything else in the country. The Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalions, quite possibly, act autonomously.

          I don’t want to discuss “we didn’t move 100 kilometers in two weeks”. Just take a map and measure the distance between the battlefields and the nearest sections of the border. This is not difficult.

    Azarov, like Yanukovych, are weak politicians, for me they are not an authority after 2014. How waveless you need to be in order to agree to everything, they will spar, and so they derailed Ukraine.

    Judging by his words, he is not far-sighted.

    Let him write memoirs, and not give advice on how to derail Ukraine once again ...
