Lavrov rejects Ukraine peace plan and UN’s grain deal revival

Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, criticized Ukraine’s proposed peace plan and the UN’s efforts to revive the Black Sea grain initiative, calling them both “unrealistic.” Lavrov made these comments following a week of intense global diplomacy at the UN General Assembly in New York, where Ukraine and its Western allies sought support in their conflict with Russia.

He dismissed Kyiv’s 10-point peace blueprint as “completely unworkable” and emphasized that sticking to this position would likely prolong the conflict. Regarding the Black Sea grain initiative, Lavrov stated that Russia withdrew from it due to unfulfilled promises, such as the removal of sanctions on a Russian bank and its reconnection to the global SWIFT system.

He also deemed the latest UN proposals for reviving the export corridor for Ukrainian agricultural products as “unrealistic.”

Additionally, Lavrov announced plans to visit Pyongyang in the coming month to continue negotiations with his North Korean counterpart, building on recent agreements reached between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Moscow.
