Kyiv can end the suffering of Ukrainian civilians by meeting Moscow’s demands, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, according to news agencies. The representative of the Kremlin made this statement just one day after Russian rockets, missiles and drones massively destroyed Ukraine’s energy infrastructure and deprived millions of Ukrainians of light, heat and water.

“The leadership of Ukraine has every possibility to return the situation to normal, it has every possibility to settle the situation in such a way that it fulfills the demands of the Russian side and thus ends all possible suffering of the civilian population,” Peskov declared.

The spokesperson did not elaborate on these requirements. Moscow changed its demands during the war. At first, she talked about the “denazification” and “demilitarization” of the neighboring country.

Peskov also said he knew nothing about a meeting between Russian and Ukrainian officials that took place a week ago in the United Arab Emirates, according to Reuters, and was devoted to the exchange of prisoners and the export of Russian ammonia, used to make fertilizers, through Ukraine. “No, I don’t know anything about that at all. I can’t say anything. I’m hearing about it for the first time,” Peskov said, according to Russian news agency TASS.

Kiev refuses to hold peace talks with Moscow until Russian troops leave Ukrainian territory and flatly refuses to negotiate with President Vladimir Putin, since the February invasion on his orders has left tens of thousands dead and forced millions from their homes.

Putin, who ordered the Russian army to invade the neighboring country on February 24, called Ukraine an artificial state entity and denied its right to exist. He claims that the “collective West” manipulated Ukrainians into turning against Russia and rejecting the concept of a common Russian-Ukrainian history and a single common nation.

Putin has made several contradictory statements since the beginning of the war. For example, he claimed that the goal of the “special military operation” is not to occupy Ukraine. But at the end of September, he himself tried to join the occupied parts of Ukraine’s Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions to Russia. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian army, in its counteroffensive, liberated Kherson, the only regional metropolis that the Russians managed to capture in 274 days of war.

Ukrainian military intelligence spokesman Andriy Yusov warned his compatriots on television to prepare for another massive Russian missile attack that will undoubtedly come. “We know that the frequency is plus or minus a week. They need that time to prepare for the next massive missile attack. Meanwhile, Ukraine is improving its air defense. But, unfortunately, the terrorist regime will undoubtedly continue its attacks,” the spokesman said, according to the Unian agency. He pointed out that although Russia has only a limited number of precision missiles and missiles, it has a considerable stockpile of S-300 missiles. Although these are intended to target aircraft and other air targets, the Russians are now using them to fire at ground targets, although in this case the deviation is often kilometers, and the missiles hit residential buildings, maternity hospitals and hospitals instead of energy objects.
