Peace talks between Ukraine and Russia are not possible now.

This was stated by UN Secretary General António Guterres, RBC-Ukraine reports, citing El Pais.

"Unfortunately, I believe that peace talks are not possible now," he said.

According to him, "both sides are convinced that they can win".

"We are, as much as possible, in dialogue with both sides to solve specific problems. The most important initiative was the export of grain from Ukraine.... And now I do not see the possibility of an immediate ceasefire and peace talks," Guterres stated.

He also stressed that the main goal of the UN is to establish "a just peace in accordance with international law and the UN Charter”.
