If at least one point of conflict with Russia remains, it will be an unfinished war – Podoliak

Latest news Ukraine

Europe will be able to return to a peaceful life only after the Russian troops are expelled from the territory of Ukraine. Mykhailo Podoliak, Advisor to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said this in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El País.

He noted that today there are no negotiations between Ukraine and the Russian Federation regarding the end of the war, as it is currently impossible to find common ground.

“It is extremely important for Russia to gain a foothold in the newly captured territories. It is not possible for Ukraine to conduct negotiations under such conditions. If negotiations are held today, Russia will want to unite the occupied territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions, which means that Russia’s appetites will increase, and after some time we will have a continuation of the war,” Mykhailo Podoliak explained.
