Medvedev: visit of Scholz, Draghi and Macron to Kiev is useless

The Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, has commented on today’s visit of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and French President Emmanuel Macron to Ukraine – saying that this will bring no benefit, RIA Novosti reports


Mr. Medvedev noted that the visit of the leaders of Germany, Italy and France will not contribute to improving the situation in Ukraine in any way.

"European connoisseurs of frogs, liver and pasta like to visit Kiev – with a zero benefit. They have again promised the EU membership and old howitzers, they have drunk vodka and went home – by train, as it was common a century ago. All is good. But this is not brining Ukraine closer to peace – though clock is ticking,” he tweeted.

Earlier, the Adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, Viktor Andrusiv, said Scholz, Draghi and Macron intended to propose Volodymyr Zelenskyy to return to peace talks with the Russian side. In turn, the press secretary of Russia’s President, Dmitry Peskov, noted that the negotiation process has come to a standstill, and its continuation is unlikely.
