  • The live feed broadcasting the African peace talks in Russia was abruptly interrupted.
  • An African delegation embarked on a mission to engage in discussions with the presidents of Ukraine and Russia, striving to foster an end to the ongoing war.
  • Africa is currently enduring the dire consequences of exorbitant costs as a direct consequence of the warfare.

Curiously, approximately forty minutes into the meeting between President Cyril Ramaphosa – alongside six other African presidents and government leaders – and the Russian President Vladimir Putin, the live feed that was transmitting the talks inexplicably ceased.

The African heads of state convened with Putin on Saturday subsequent to their meeting with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, joining forces as a delegation participating in the Africa Peace Initiative for peace talks.

The meeting, which took place at the Marble Hall in Konstantinovsky Palace, St Petersburg, commenced with an address by the presidents, yet Putin intervened before his turn to speak at the end of the address.

Putin interjected following Ramaphosa’s speech, consequentially leading to the abrupt termination of the live feed.

News24’s assistant editor for investigations, Pieter du Toit, points out the lack of independent South African journalists present with the president, rendering it virtually impossible to accurately document the remarks made by Ramaphosa and Putin as events unfolded.

Du Toit expressed:

We are heavily reliant on information disseminated by the Presidency, which is far from an ideal situation.

Du Toit was part of a group of journalists and security personnel left stranded at Warsaw’s Chopin Airport for over 26 hours while the president ventured to Ukraine.

The delegation was unable to accompany the president to Russia.

Together with Ramaphosa, the African peace delegation included Senegalese head of state Macky Sall, Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema, Comorian President Azali Assoumani, as well as leaders from Uganda, Egypt, and Congo-Brazzaville.

The subsequent events following the abrupt termination of the live feed remain unknown; nevertheless, prior to this occurrence, Ramaphosa, spearheading the delegation, provided an outline of at least 10 points aimed at resolving the war.

These points were also conveyed to Zelensky.

These points encompassed:

  • Attentively acknowledging and understanding both the Russian and Ukrainian perspectives regarding the war;
  • Negotiating a settlement and cessation of hostilities;
  • An active de-escalation of the conflict from both sides;
  • Acknowledging the sovereignty of the countries and urging all parties to adhere to internationally recognized principles;
  • Ensuring the provision of security guarantees;
  • Facilitating the transportation of grain shipments through the Black Sea and into Africa;
  • Allocating humanitarian aid to all individuals affected by the conflict;
  • Securing the release of all prisoners of war on both sides;
  • Repatriating all children displaced as a result of the war;
  • Mandating post-war reconstruction efforts; and
  • Further engaging in negotiations to ultimately terminate the war, with Africa actively contributing.

Ramaphosa underscored that the war was detrimentally impacting African nations and global communities at large due to the soaring prices of commodities.

He specifically highlighted the escalating costs of grain, fertilizer, and fuel.

Subsequent to his address, Putin interjected during the presentations, disallowing the other heads of state from addressing him.

Putin contended that the crisis in Ukraine originated from a coup d’état in 2014, which he defined as an uprising against the pro-Russian former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, following a fraudulent election. He emphasized that the Ukrainian people vehemently rejected this coup, necessitating Russia’s support.

Putin attributed many of the issues in Ukraine to the West, asserting that it was the Western nations and not Russia that instigated the considerable surge in food prices.

During his lecture to the officials, Putin further emphasized Russia’s willingness to engage in negotiations with Ukraine, shifting the blame onto Ukraine for their unwillingness to negotiate.

The perplexing “coup” mentioned by Putin referred to the uprising against Viktor Yanukovych. Subsequently, a democratic election took place, leading to the election of a new Ukrainian president.

According to a report issued by the European Union, Ukraine ranks among the foremost exporters of grain, and the conflict has resulted in significant concerns regarding food security for millions of individuals across the globe.
