Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Thursday dismissed reports of substantial progress in peace talks with Ukraine, blaming Kyiv for slowing the negotiations.

“On the whole, that’s wrong,” he said when asked about a Financial Times report Wednesday that the two sides had made major progress toward a deal. The FT account did include “some correct elements,” he said, without elaborating. “When there’s progress, we’ll tell you.”

Peskov reiterated allegations that Ukraine is “in no rush” to make a deal, saying that Russian negotiators are ready to work around the clock. More talks are expected Thursday, he said.–Bloomberg
