The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reacted.
Indonesia has proposed its so-called “peace plan” for Ukraine. However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine criticized it.
It is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the speaker of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Oleg Nikolenko on Facebook.
What Indonesia has to offer
Indonesian Foreign Minister Prabowo Subianto presented a “peace plan” for Ukraine at the Shangri-La Dialogue summit in Singapore. He noted that “events in Ukraine” have a negative impact on people around the world, as food and energy prices have risen.
The Foreign Minister called for an immediate ceasefire and the creation of a demilitarized zone.
“First, immediately cease fire and hostilities. Secondly, to withdraw troops from each side 15 kilometers from the current front line and create a demilitarized zone, and thirdly, to create a peacekeeping mission under the auspices of the UN, which will monitor the observance of the ceasefire,” he said.
Subianto proposes holding a referendum in the disputed territories to “determine the will of the inhabitants”.
Foreign Ministry Speaker Oleg Nikolenko thanked Indonesia for its attention to the settlement of the war in Ukraine. However, he stressed that there are no disputed territories between Ukraine and the Russian Federation to hold referendums there, and the occupation of part of Ukraine is a fact recorded in official UN documents.
“In the occupied territories, the Russian army commits war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Russia must get out of Ukrainian territories, and Ukraine must restore its territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders. There can be no alternative scenarios,” the diplomat noted.
According to Nikolenko, a ceasefire, a 15-kilometer disengagement and a demilitarized zone will not work either, because Russia will use this to build up new forces.
Nikolenko invited Indonesia to join the peace formula proposed by Ukraine.
