"Today the third round of negotiations took place in Belarus, and I would like to say ‘the third and final one,’ but we are realists," he said on Telegram on Tuesday. "Therefore, we will talk, we will insist on negotiations until we find a way to tell our people, ‘this is how we will come to peace.’".
"I would like to once again strongly urge our Western colleagues to convince the Ukrainian leadership to finally think about the safety of Ukrainian and foreign citizens held by radicals and get involved in the work to open and ensure the security of humanitarian corridors," he said at a Security Council meeting. "Of course, that’s if you still have any leverage over the nationalists, which we increasingly doubt."
"We are ready for this work," the envoy went on to say.
