Zelensky noted that Ukraine is ready to talk with Russia about the fact that the issue of the peninsula is “out of time” and postpone it, but “not forever.” The Russian authorities consider the recognition of Crimea one of the most important positions in the agreement with Ukraine
Ukraine will never recognize Crimea as Russian, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said in an interview with Rai 1. The record was published by the office of the president.
“We are ready to talk with Russia about what is not in time for a decision on Crimea,” lt;…”gt; by the time of human lives, let’s set aside this issue if it complicates the negotiation process. If the issue of Crimea complicates the process of meeting the presidents of Ukraine and Russia, let’s put this issue aside,” Zelensky said.
According to him, the Ukrainian delegation in Turkey offered to leave this issue, “but not forever.” “They suggested that our states should settle the issue of Crimea within ten years. We have not heard the answer to this question,” Zelensky said.
He also stated that Ukraine does not recognize the autonomy of the DPR and the LPR.
At the talks in Istanbul at the end of March, the Ukrainian side handed over to the Russian side its written proposals on the treaty, they included the non-proliferation of security guarantees for Kiev on the territory of Crimea and Donbass. The document also stated that for 15 years the parties will hold negotiations on the peninsula and during this time will not use military force to resolve the issue. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov then saw in the position of the Ukrainian negotiators an understanding that “the issues of Crimea and Donbass have been finally resolved”.
However, in early April, the Minister said that Ukraine had submitted a new draft agreement and departed from its wording on Crimea and Donbass. “Instead, vague formulations are proposed about some kind of effective control, and as of February 23,” Lavrov explained.

The head of the Russian delegation at the talks, Vladimir Medinsky, noted that the agreement with Ukraine should contain important positions for Russia, including the definition and recognition of Crimea and Donbass. Before the start of the Russian special operation, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the recognition of the choice of Crimeans one of the conditions for the rehabilitation of relations with Ukraine. “They came voluntarily and made their decision to reunite with Russia,” Putin said.
