Russia is ready to negotiate peace in the Donbas. Such an opinion Ukrainian actor, creative producer of the Studio “Kvartal 95”, a former adviser to the Secretary of Council of national security and defense Council (NSDC) Sergey Sivoho expressed in the “BATMAN” editor-in-chief of the edition “GORDON” Alesya Batsman.

“Now is a unique situation, when you can really achieve peace. I somehow think, my personal opinion is that Russia is now ready to compromise, but she just traded, she tries to pry for yourself out of the situation. I’m not a scientist, I’m not an expert in diplomacy, I don’t know what exactly, but it seems to me that now is not to take advantage of this situation, it would be a sin,” he said.

Later, the ex-adviser of national security Council Secretary said that he has in mind the situation after the presidential elections in Ukraine “before the onset of this terrible pandemic factor”.

“You know, Russia was already in trouble, she had to solve somehow this question. Constantly spend the money for the so-called “LNR” and “DNR” – it’s hard and noticeable, even for such a monster who feeds on natural resources like Russia, let’s face it, superpowers. They need the comfort of this conflict and to save face, and get some benefit for themselves”, – said Sivoho.

According to him, “we need to figure out how to utilize it.”
