Hersh: Russia and Ukraine have begun peace talks

The famous American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who previously accused the United States of explosions on the Nord Stream gas pipelines, made a new statement. He claims that ceasefire negotiations have begun between Russia and Ukraine. According to Hersh, these negotiations are being conducted by the chiefs of the general staffs of the armed forces of both countries - Valery Zaluzhny and Valery Gerasimov.

The journalist refers to an unnamed official in Washington and states that Zaluzhny is negotiating with Russia without the consent of President Zelensky. According to Hersh, the West made it clear to Zelensky that if he does not agree to negotiations with Moscow, someone else will.

According to Hersh, during the negotiations the Russian side insists on Kiev recognizing Russian jurisdiction over Crimea and the territories of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, which are under the control of the Russian Federation. At the same time, Ukraine, according to the journalist, can join NATO, provided that the alliance does not deploy its troops and strike weapons on its territory.

At the moment, neither Moscow nor Kyiv have officially responded to this publication of the American journalist. These statements by Hersh are of considerable interest as they may indicate possible changes in the diplomatic realities of the current conflict.
