Mikhail Podolyak, a top adviser of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, says a Financial Times report detailing a possible ceasefire agreement contains only the Russian position, and not Ukraine’s counter.
He indicates that the only matters he can say are under discussion are a ceasefire, Russian troops leaving Ukraine, and security guarantees.
Briefly. FT published a draft, which represents the requesting position of the Russian side. Nothing more. The ???????? side has its own positions. The only thing we confirm at this stage is a ceasefire, withdrawal of Russian troops and security guarantees from a number of countries

The Financial Times story had said the sides were nearing a deal that would see Ukraine adopt a policy of neutrality, shrink its military, and agree not to enter security pacts with Western allies.
