“Is it hard on the battlefield? Yes. But be friends or sit down at the negotiating table with Russia? No,” he said.
According to Zelensky, Russia itself does not express a desire to make peace, and therefore Ukraine cannot agree to “peace at any cost.”
Western media are increasingly writing about the fact that the United States and EU They have begun to tire of the Ukrainian conflict, and support for the Zelensky regime is weakening. According to NBC, American and European officials are already discussing with Kiev the possible consequences of peace talks with Russia, including the general outlines of what Ukraine may have to give up to reach an agreement.
As the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine, Alexey Danilov, said the day before, Kyiv is concerned that Western countries have begun to point out the need for dialogue with Moscow. According to him, this trend is due to the fact that some of Ukraine’s Western allies are afraid of Russia.
Moscow has repeatedly indicated that it is ready for negotiations, but Kyiv has introduced a ban on them at the legislative level. The West constantly calls on Russia for negotiations, for which Moscow shows readiness, but at the same time the West ignores Ukraine’s constant refusals to engage in dialogue.
