Speaking to reporters in the capital Moscow, Peskov evaluated the 10th package of sanctions imposed by the EU against Russia. Referring to the words of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, "We will take Crimea back and ensure peace," Peskov said that it is not possible for Ukraine to take Crimea, "It is not possible for Crimea to come under the control of Ukraine. It is an inseparable whole,” he said.
Noting that Tatyana Moskalkova, the Russian Commissioner for Human Rights, who was involved in prisoner exchange, was also included in the sanction list, Peskov said:
"Of course, all this is nonsense. They obviously include people who are unknown, who have nothing to do with the sanction issue, to create the sanctions list. On the other hand, there are successful people on the lists. It doesn't bother them that these people are included in the sanctions list. I'm sure of that. Obviously, the number of people the West will impose sanctions on is insufficient."
Referring to China's peace plan for the resolution of the Ukraine issue, Peskov said, "Any attempt to develop plans that will contribute to the peaceful resolution of the issue is noteworthy. We also consider the plan of our Chinese friends with great care."
Stating that the details in the plan should be analyzed and the interests of the parties should be taken into account, Peskov emphasized that this is a "long" and "tense" process.
"At the moment, we do not see any preconditions for this event to progress towards peace. A special military operation is underway. We are moving towards the set targets," Peskov said.
Referring to the situation in the Transnistria region, which is located in Moldova and declared its independence unilaterally, Peskov emphasized that the situation here is alarming and is followed carefully, "We know that the Kiev regime and our competitors in European countries can make various provocations," used the phrases.
On February 23, the Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that Ukraine was preparing an "armed" provocation against the Transnistria region and deployed soldiers and weapons to the border to invade the region.
In the statement made by the Ministry of Defense of Moldova, it was stated that the situation in the Transnistria region was carefully followed and "There is currently no direct threat to the military security of the state," expression was included.
