Ukraine would be wise to accept the peace proposal of Russian President Vladimir Putin, otherwise Russian troops will pressurize and make life difficult for Kiev, said the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev.

"Honestly speaking, I think the president said it all, I think the next peace proposal that Russia makes will be worse for the Ukrainian authorities, no matter how we treat them. "Now they have the opportunity to consider the peace proposal of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and at least try to achieve peace and end this part of the conflict," he told reporters.

Otherwise, according to Medvedev, the Russian offensive will continue.

"And it will be difficult to say where the lines of the buffer zone mentioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin will be." It is very likely that all this will not work in favor of the current Ukrainian authorities. That is why they must hurry while they still can," he added.

However, according to the official, Kiev has already responded with a refusal, at the conference in Switzerland, "rejecting all proposals from the beginning, returning the discussion to the beginning." "In vain. So from now on it will be worse," he concluded.

On June 14, at a meeting with Russian diplomats, Russian President Vladimir Putin made new peace proposals for resolving the conflict in Ukraine. These include recognizing the status of Crimea, the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions as part of Russia, consolidating Ukraine's non-aligned and nuclear status, its demilitarization and denazification, and the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions. The Ukrainian side rejected the initiative. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called Moscow's proposal an ultimatum, while his adviser Mikhail Podolyak said the new Russian initiative allegedly did not contain a "real peace proposal."
