Russia said Wednesday that holding peace talks with Ukraine made no sense “in the current situation” as Moscow presses ahead with its offensive in the pro-Western country.

“It doesn’t make any sense in the current situation,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told state media in an interview, referring to peace talks with Kyiv.

Lavrov said that the first rounds of talks with Ukraine proved that Kyiv had no “desire to discuss anything in earnest.”

“They simply will never be able to articulate anything that would deserve the serious attention of serious people,” he added.

“We’ve already figured it out.”

Talks between Russia and Ukraine largely ground to a halt in mid-April, Lavrov said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin sent troops to Ukraine on February 24.
