The politician said this in an interview with Russian media.

Medvedev pointed out the futility of attempts by Western politicians to “push” Kyiv in the direction of negotiations.

He added that there is an explanation for this.

“Because they realize, as soon as they say: “We are ready for negotiations with Russia” (and their conditions are clear - this is recognition of the results of the SVO), their head will be immediately torn off, they will be demolished,” RIA Novosti quotes him.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia is ready for dialogue to resolve the Ukrainian conflict.

He also noted that Russia, even after using military means in Ukraine, tried to end the Ukrainian conflict peacefully.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that now the ball is not in Russia’s court regarding negotiations with Ukraine; Zelensky only needs to lift the ban on dialogue with Moscow.
