MOSCOW:  The Davos meeting, scheduled for January 14, will be used by the West to trick the Global South and Global East countries through deception and blackmail into taking Ukraine’s side, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

"The Davos meeting will be used by them [Western countries] to once again attempt to lure the Global South and Global East countries with deception and blackmail into taking their side. We are convinced that our partners in Asia, Africa and Latin America will comprehend the real state of affairs and will not allow being drawn into explicitly anti-Russian initiatives," said the statement published on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website.

According to Zakharova, Moscow has repeatedly explained "lameness, hypocrisy and detachment" from reality of the Zelensky 'formula' and the Copenhagen meetings aimed at promoting it.

"Firstly, the Zelensky ‘formula’ in essence is a set of ultimatums to Russia. They are trying to compel us to retreat from the liberated areas and to leave the Russian people who voted for reunification with their homeland behind at the mercy of Ukrainian Nazis. They seek to take our country to a tribunal and to seize its legitimate assets in Western banks. Such ultimatums cannot lay the foundation for the start of negotiations," she said.

"The remaining items of the Zelensky ‘formula’ - concerning nuclear, food, energy and environmental security - were invented by Kiev to mislead the target audience," she added.

"Secondly, the legal ban on negotiations with the Russian leadership is in effect in Ukraine. Until it is lifted, discussions on any proposals have no practical sense," the diplomat recalled. "In April 2022, Kiev terminated negotiations with Russia at the behest of the West. For its part, our country has never refused from political and diplomatic means to resolve the Ukraine crisis."

Hypocrisy and categories of war

Furthermore, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman noted, any talks about a solution to the Ukraine crisis without Russia’s participation make no sense, and while promoting the West-backed Zelensky ‘formula’ of ultimatums as having no alternative, Kiev along with its handlers "usurps the very right to put forward peace initiatives" and blocks all rational ideas of other countries, first and foremost, of the Global South and Global East.

"The Copenhagen-format meetings discuss no other initiatives than those of Kiev’s," she added.

The diplomat emphasized that the Zelensky regime’s hypocrisy is vividly proven by the fact that while arranging a Davos meeting to talk about a potential peace solution, it is using cluster munitions in cold blood to bombard civilian facilities in Belgorod, Donetsk and other Russian cities, deliberately killing civilians.

"In turn, the West provides Kiev with munitions, including cluster and depleted uranium munitions, pumps weapons to it, and facilitates the escalation and prolongation of hostilities. The aggressive rhetoric calling for inflicting a ‘strategic defeat’ on Russia has not subsided," Zakharova continued.

"All this shows the true colors of the Kiev leadership, Washington, London and Brussels. Their fundamental approaches remain unchanged. They are still thinking in terms of war and are guided by long-term plans to annihilate everything Russian, by civilizational confrontation with Russia, and by undermining its legitimate interests in the field of international peace and security," Zakharova said.

On January 14, Switzerland’s Davos will host the fourth meeting on Ukraine of the Copenhagen group. Its organizers - Kiev and Bern - have invited representatives from more than 70 countries and international organizations.
