Ukraine’s top security official says there will be no peace treaty with Russia

The conflict between the two countries continues to rage, as the announcement comes.

During an interview on Monday, Alexey Danilov, head of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council NSDC, was asked about international security assurances for Kiev and possible peace with Russia.

Danilov said he could only sign an act of its capitulation with Russia. The sooner they do it, the better it will be for their country. The official said earlier in the interview that President Volodymyr Zelensky's office handles the talks and not the NSDC. We have our own views. He said that he knows my stance on the issue. He said that he believes that Zelensky will not violate the constitution of Ukraine, which guarantees the country's territorial integrity and aspirations to join NATO.

Later on Monday, Zelensky spokesman Alexey Arestovich brought up Danilov's remarks during a chat with activist and YouTuber Mark Feygin. There will be no peace treaty with Russia, and that is what the statement is. Arestovich said that there would only be the capitulation of the Russian Federation.

Asked whether Danilov had been authorized to make such statements, Arestovich said he doesn't just make statements like that. He is an official of the highest rank. Moscow wants Ukraine to renounce its bid to join NATO, recognize Crimea as part of Russia, and the independence of the Donbass republics. Moscow wants the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine.

Peace negotiations stalled after a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey in late March. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused Kiev on Sunday of constantly changing positions and sabotaging the talks.

Russia attacked the neighboring Ukraine in late February after Kiev failed to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French brokered protocol was designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.

Kiev insists the Russian offensive was unprovoked and has denied that it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
