Ukraine: Draghi calls Putin-English

(ANSA)-On May 26, Rome-Italy Prime Minister Mario Draghi called Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Ukrainian War, the Kremlin said.

Putin told Draghi that Russia would secure an uninterrupted supply of gas to Italy.

He said Russia is ready to help fight the war-induced food crisis in exchange for sanctions being revoked.

Russia’s Foreign Minister has previously rejected Italy’s peace program against Ukraine as “not serious.”

Italy’s four-stage plan features a ceasefire, Ukraine’s “international status”, whether it is neutral, the bilateral agreement between Kyiv and Moscow on the disputed areas of Crimea and Dombas, and Discuss multilateral agreements on peace and security in Europe.

“A serious politician who wants to get results but is not engaged in self-promotion of the electorate cannot propose this kind of thing,” Lavrov told Russia Today.

Lavrov reiterated that Italy has not sent the plan to Moscow, but “what appears in the media causes feelings of sadness.”

He seemed to refer to the idea that Donbus and Crimea were under Ukrainian sovereignty with autonomy, Moscow watchers said. (ANSA).
