Ukrainian President says that he’s ready to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin and that “we must find an agreement”, but with no ultimatum as a condition.
Volodymyr Zelensky also told Italian RAI state TV in an interview that Ukraine will never recognize Crimea as part of Russia, which annexed that part of southern Ukraine in 2014.
“Crimea has always had its autonomy, it has its parliament, but on the inside of Ukraine”, - Zelensky.
The interviewer asked the Ukrainian leader about a comment by French President Emmanuel Macron cautioning against any humiliation of Putin.
“We want the Russian army to leave our land, we aren’t on Russian soil. We won’t save Putin’s face by paying with our territory. That would be unjust”, - Zelensky replied.
