SA ‘approached’ for mediation role on Ukraine: Ramaphosa

‘President Putin appreciated our balanced approach’.

South Africa has been “approached to play a mediation role” in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, President Cyril Ramaphosa said after a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Ramaphosa said on Twitter that he had spoken to Putin to “gain an understanding of the situation that was unfolding between Russia and Ukraine.” He conveyed his belief that the conflict should be resolved through mediation and negotiation.

“President Putin appreciated our balanced approach,” Ramaphosa said on Twitter.

“We believe this position enables both parties to subject the conflict to mediation and negotiation. Based on our relations with the Russian Federation and as a member of BRICS, South Africa has been approached to play a mediation role.”

Cde Putin is not interested in mediation, he never was. It’s a smoke screen. That’s why the talks have failed so far. The Russians were sent with instructions to make the negotiations fail. We have enough issues on our plate here in Mzansi Mr. Cde Pres. that require your urgent and undivided attention.

100% Boepens, Cde Pres. has made no attempt to even keep the peace between the Mwakerakera’s and South African’s, and probably will not succeed on that one either! He does not seem to understand the loss of GDP and therefore jobs, every time the highways are blocked for a day, and foreigner’s are hauled from the trucks, cargo looted!

Cde Pres. stay in your lane, and sort those white lines out before they are worn out or even stolen!!

Even with post-graduate education you phone your professor occasionally. I guess SA versions of oligarchs need to speak to Cde Putin from time to time.
ANC has lost all standing in world and Cde President will not be required. Cde better start start mediating his problems here – every aspect of SOE’s etc, etc

The July riots and R50billion damage to our economy are clear indicators of Cyril’s mediation skills in his own party. Excellent track record to begin engaging Russia and Ukraine!
