Q. Key elements of positions of the sides

According to a news report, the following was the position of Ukraine offered during the negotiations in March:

Proposal 1: Ukraine proclaims itself a neutral state, promising to remain nonaligned with any blocs and refrain from developing nuclear weapons — in exchange for international legal guarantees. Possible guarantor states include Russia, Great Britain, China, the United States, France, Turkey, Germany, Canada, Italy, Poland, and Israel, and other states would also be welcome to join the treaty.

Proposal 2: These international security guarantees for Ukraine would not extend to Crimea, Sevastopol, or certain areas of the Donbas. The parties to the agreement would need to define the boundaries of these regions or agree that each party understands these boundaries differently.

Proposal 3: Ukraine vows not to join any military coalitions or host any foreign military bases or troop contingents. Any international military exercises would be possible only with the consent of the guarantor-states. For their part, these guarantors confirm their intention to promote Ukraine’s membership in the European Union.

Proposal 4: Ukraine and the guarantor-states agree that (in the event of aggression, any armed attack against Ukraine, or any military operation against Ukraine) each of the guarantor-states, after urgent and immediate mutual consultations (which must be held within three days) on the exercise of the right to individual or collective self-defense(as recognized by Article 51 of the UN Charter) will provide (in response to and on the basis of an official appeal by Ukraine) assistance to Ukraine, as a permanently neutral state under attack. This aid will be facilitated through the immediate implementation of such individual or joint actions as may be necessary, including the closure of Ukraine’s airspace, the provision of necessary weapons, the use of armed force with the goal of restoring and then maintaining Ukraine’s security as a permanently neutral state.

Proposal 5: Any such armed attack (any military operation at all) and all measures taken as a result will be reported immediately to the UN Security Council. Such measures will cease when the UNSC takes the measures needed to restore and maintain international peace and security.

Proposal 6: Implementing protections against possible provocations, the agreement will regulate the mechanism for fulfilling Ukraine’s security guarantees based on the results of consultations between Ukraine and the guarantor-states.

Proposal 7: The treaty provisionally applies from the date it is signed by Ukraine and all or most guarantor-states. The treaty enters force after (1) Ukraine’s permanently neutral status is approved in a nationwide referendum, (2) the introduction of the appropriate amendments in Ukraine’s Constitution, and (3) ratification in the parliaments of Ukraine and the guarantor-states.

Proposal 8: The parties’ desire to resolve issues related to Crimea and Sevastopol shall be committed to bilateral negotiations between Ukraine and Russia for a period of 15 years. Ukraine and Russia also pledge not to resolve these issues by military means and to continue diplomatic resolution efforts.

Proposal 9: The parties shall continue consultations (with the involvement of other guarantor-states) to prepare and agree on the provisions of a Treaty on Security Guarantees for Ukraine, ceasefire modalities, the withdrawal of troops and other paramilitary formations, and the opening and ensuring of safe-functioning humanitarian corridors on an ongoing basis, as well as the exchange of dead bodies and the release of prisoners of war and interned civilians.

Proposal 10: The parties consider it possible to hold a meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Russia for the purpose of signing a treaty and/or adopting political decisions regarding other remaining unresolved issues.

According to a BBC interview with the Turkish facilitators, the following were the key points raised by President Vladimir Putin in a telephone conversation with President Erdogan:

  • Permanent neutrality of Ukraine that excludes NATO membership;
  • Disarmament of Ukraine to the point that it poses no threat to the Russian Federation;
  • Better provision for Russian-language speakers in Ukraine
  • De-nazification;
  • Addressing Luhansk and Donetsk (presumably recognition of their independence);
  • Acceptance that Crimea is part of the Russian Federation.

  • According to Zelensky’s office, 'The key issue of the talks is an immediate ceasefire and the withdrawal of troops from Ukraine'.

29 March 2022

  • In advance of this round of talks, Russia announced: that ‘a draft presidential decree is being developed on retaliatory visa measures in connection with the unfriendly actions of a number of foreign states', per Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. ‘This act will introduce a number of restrictions on entry into the territory of Russia. And at the same time, in order to prevent a threat to the life and health of citizens of third countries and stateless persons who ended up on the territory of Ukraine, the procedure for entering and staying on the territory of Russia was facilitated for them to safely return to their countries of citizenship’.
  • Also leading up to this round of talks, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said he had instructed his deputy for humanitarian affairs, Martin Griffiths, to explore the possibility of a ceasefire in Ukraine to provide humanitarian assistance.
  • In a speech concurrent to the negotiations, President Zelensky said: 'The situation has not become easier. The scale of the challenges has not diminished. The Russian army still has significant potential to continue attacks against our state. They still have a lot of equipment and enough people completely deprived of rights whom they can send to the cauldron of war. Therefore, we stay alert and do not reduce our defense efforts…It is on this basis that I consider the messages on the negotiation process, which is underway at various levels with representatives of the Russian Federation. The enemy is still in our territory. The shelling of our cities continues. Mariupol is blocked. Missile and air strikes do not stop. This is the reality. These are the facts'.
  • Further: ‘Yes, we can call positive the signals we hear from the negotiating platform. But these signals do not silence the explosion of Russian shells…Of course, Ukraine is willing to negotiate and will continue the negotiation process. To the extent that really depends on us. We expect to get the result. There must be real security for us, for our state, for sovereignty, for our people. Russian troops must leave the occupied territories. Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity must be guaranteed. There can be no compromise on sovereignty and our territorial integrity. And there will not be any'.
  • NYT reported of these talks:
    • ‘Ukrainian officials said their country was ready to declare itself permanently neutral — forsaking the prospect of joining NATO, a key Russian demand — and discuss Russian territorial claims in exchange for “security guarantees” from a group of other nations. An aide to Ukraine’s president called the Russian delegation “constructive”, while Russia said it would “drastically” scale back its military activity around Kyiv to “increase mutual trust”'.
    • 'Russian officials said, the goal will be to take more territory in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region, where Russia has installed two separatist statelets that President Vladimir V. Putin recognized last month as independent, but that no other nation has formally acknowledged'.
    • President Biden said he would not draw any conclusions about Russia’s intentions 'until I see what their actions are'. Speaking after a White House meeting with the prime minister of Singapore, Mr. Biden added, 'We’ll see if they follow through with what they are suggesting…In the meantime…we’re going to continue to keep strong the sanctions and will continue to provide the Ukrainian military with the capacity to defend themselves'.
    • Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken, on a diplomatic trip to Morocco, told reporters, 'There is what Russia says and there’s what Russia does…and what Russia is doing is the continued brutalization of Ukraine and its people'.

3 April 2022

    • According to Reuters, Russia’s chief negotiator, Valdimir Medinsky, asserted that Ukraine had agreed it would be neutral, not have nuclear weapons, not join a military bloc and refuse to host military bases. However, the two were still split on the question of territory.

4 April 2022

  • President Zelensky stated during a conversation in Bucha with Ukrainian and international journalists that ‘peace in Ukraine is impossible without victory, and victory can be achieved through diplomacy in parallel with the fighting of the Ukrainian army.'
  • Specifically, saying: ‘Every day, when our troops come in and deoccupy certain territories, you see what is happening. It's very difficult to talk when you see what they've done here. Every day people are found there in barrels, in cellars, strangled, tortured. Therefore, we believe that if they have something to think with, they need to think faster’...‘We strive for peace, we deserve it. And these people showed it, and the Armed Forces showed it. Peace is impossible without victory. Victory can be achieved in a diplomatic format in parallel with the fighting steps of our army. Our army demonstrates its fighting steps on a daily basis, but it is not easy. We do not want to lose millions of people. That is why there should be dialogue’.
