Russia says a ceasefire in Ukraine would not enable it to achieve the goals of its special military operation at the moment.

Talking to newsmen, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said parts of a plan proposed by China for peace in Ukraine are unrealisable at the moment due to the unwillingness of the Ukrainian side.

The Kremlin was reacting after Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko called for an immediate ceasefire, without preconditions to start negotiations on a lasting peace settlement.
