According to Tsekov, such conditions are unacceptable, and this, as the parliamentarian stressed, only testifies to the unwillingness of the Ukrainian leader to meet with the Russian president. 

“If I wanted to meet for real, I would give instructions to my staff ... If he were a realist politician, he would have left the term“ occupation ”at least,” the senator added.

Earlier Nikiforov spoke about the condition of a meeting between the presidents of Russia and Ukraine.

On September 5, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the issue of Crimea's ownership cannot be a topic for discussion at the talks between Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky.

Crimea became a Russian region after a referendum in March 2014, in which a majority of residents voted in favor of reunification with Russia.
