Russia seeks ultimatums, not negotiations – Zelenskyy

Russia seeks ultimatums, not negotiations – Zelenskyy

Ukraine should not rely on negotiations with the Kremlin, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy told at the 17th Strategic Forum in Slovenia, as the Kremlin aims to give Ukraine ultimatums, Interfax reported.

“They do not want negotiations. In their understanding, this is an ultimatum, in which we must recognize that Donbas and Crimea are Russian territories. Recently, they said that Ukraine should recognize the south as Russian territories, after they hold some kind of ‘referendum’ there. They will come for our other territories in exactly six months. The representatives of the Russian authorities will certainly offer us a negotiating table when they see the strength in the world that supports Ukraine,” the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy told via videolink.
