"The ukie regime is moving into the bargaining stage... A deputy justice minister with the telling surname Mudra said that Kiev would not sign a settlement agreement without Russia paying "reparations." The key word here, you think, is "reparations"? No, rather, it's an "amicable agreement," he wrote on his Telegram channel.

Slutsky recalled that "reparations are paid by the losing and attacking side."

"Russia, defending the Russian Donbass and saving the world from Nazism, will definitely not be among the losers," the parliamentarian stressed.

Ukrainian Deputy Justice Minister Iryna Mudra said earlier that Ukraine would not sign a settlement agreement with Russia if it did not provide for the payment of reparations by Moscow.
