On Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said that his country wants to know more details of the Brazilian initiative for peace in Ukraine.
“Regarding the Brazilian initiative, it is premature to assess it. We must have more information and details,” he said, adding that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is precisely visiting the South American country to find out about the peace proposal.
“Any idea that takes Russia’s interests and concerns into account deserves attention,” the Kremlin spokesman pointed out.
Since the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine in 2022, Brazil has maintained a neutral position and rejected the imposition of sanctions imposed on Russia.
