Kremlin Says Roman Abramovich Is Not Involved in Peace Talks, Only Took Part 'At The Initial Stage'

One day after the Wall Street Journal reported that Volodymyr Zelensky quietly lobbied Joe Biden to keep Russian-Israeli oligarch Roman Abramovich off Washington's sanctions list because he was helping "facilitate peace talks," the Kremlin announced he is not involved in peace talks and only took part "at the initial stage."

"He did take part at the initial stage," Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday. "Now the negotiations are between the two teams, the Russians and Ukrainians."

That's about as clear a message as possible that they couldn't care less whether the US sanctions Abramovich (who fled to Israel) and Zelensky's push to keep him off the sanctions list was the result of a corrupt backroom deal -- just as I speculated.
