Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced Friday in Lisbon that Ukraine rejects any peace mediation with Russia that does not rule out from the outset any loss of Ukrainian lands or a cessation of hostilities.
“Any peace plan or initiative, any mediation, should not involve a legal or real loss of Ukrainian territory,” Kuleba said after meeting his Portuguese counterpart, Joao Gomes Cravinho.
“No initiative or mediation should be based on the assumption that we must freeze the conflict and then see what happens,” Kuleba told reporters.

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister also noted that “any mediation should lead to the full restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”-
Kuleba visited Lisbon to participate in the top-secret Bilderberg meeting, which is being held this year in the Portuguese capital until Sunday.
Ukraine, Russia, NATO and cross-border threats are among the topics to be discussed at the 69th session of the Bilderberg meeting, which brings together political and economic figures from Europe and North America on global issues.
The names of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell were also included in a list of about 130 participants presented by the organizers of this conference.
