Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with NBC News that although Ukrainian progress on the front is slow, he added that the Ukrainian military is coming up with “new plans, new operations to move forward faster and attack Russia unexpectedly.”
– I do not think that the situation is stalemate – Zelensky argued, speaking about the situation on the front. He agreed that Ukrainian progress on the front is slow and that there is “fatigue” in the army as the conflict drags on. However, he argued that the Ukrainian military is still more motivated than the enemy.
– Our military comes up with new plans, new operations to move forward faster and attack unexpectedly Russia – Zelensky said in an interview with NBC News.
Zelensky: Ukraine does not want to hold any talks with terrorists
President Ukraine he also referred to Saturday’s NBC News reports, which – based on anonymous sources – said that some Western and EU officials were trying to find out what could persuade Ukraine to consider peace talks with Russia.
Zelensky argued that Ukraine “does not want to conduct any talks with terrorists.” – There are many different voices around. I have heard many opinions without any concrete proposals. But today I have no relations with Russia and they know my position. This is the position of my country, our society – we do not want to conduct any dialogue with terrorists, Zelensky said.
He emphasized that the word of terrorists “is worth nothing.”
NBC News reported on Saturday, citing American officials, that representatives of the United States and the European Union began discreetly talking to Ukraine about the possibility of peace negotiations with Russia. The talks would cover, among other things, in very general terms, the issue of what Ukraine would have to give up in order to reach an agreement with Russia.
