Moscow has expressed skepticism regarding the implementation of a truce in Ukraine during the 2024 Paris Olympics, citing concerns over potential exploitation of the ceasefire by Kyiv.

Dmitry Peskov, the Press Secretary for the Russian President, stated that no official steps towards a truce have been proposed, and historically, such pauses have been used by Kyiv to regroup and rearm.

This observation was reported by the Russian news agency Interfax.

In response to inquiries about the Kremlin's stance on the truce idea floated by French President Emmanuel Macron, Peskov remarked, "Until now, no one has taken any official steps in this regard."

He further elaborated on the challenges associated with such proposals, noting, "Both the president and our military drew attention to the fact that, as a rule, the Kyiv regime uses such initiatives to try to regroup, rearm, and so on. This, of course, complicates the process of considering such initiatives."
