Advisor to the Head of the President's Office Mykhailo Podolyak warned not to use russian speakers as newsmakers.

He said this as a comment to putin speaker dmitrii peskov's statement regarding the "peace agreement project" submitted by the russian side Ukrinform reports.

"I think we shouldn't use these russian speakers or other as newsmakers. It's much better to base our judgement solely on official statements from the Ukrainian side. Because russians too often use public statements as another pressure tool. Why play into that?" Podolyak said.

According to him, Ukraine submitted their propositions regarding the formulations to the opponent side back during the Istanbul round of talks. Namely, the propositions concerned security guarantees and assuring non-aggression towards Ukraine in the future.

"The russian side has studied the propositions and articulated their own position. Now it is our turn to examin, compare, make conclusions. Including political and legal ones," Podolyak stressed.

We remind that on April 20, the russian president's speaker dmitrii peskov told the journalists that a draft document has been submitted to the Ukrainian side as a part of the negotiation process, and that moscow was waiting for Kyiv's reaction.
