President Volodymyr Zelensky said the example of the Wagner Group terrorist leader, who died in a plane crash last month, shows what happens when you try to make an agreement with a dictator Vladimir Putin. Ukrainian leader in an interview CNN mentioned other states temporarily occupied by Russia: Moldova and Georgia.
CNN reports “only modest successes” in the counteroffensive, and Zelensky told the channel that he rejects the suggestion that it is time to negotiate peace with the Kremlin.
“If you want to have a compromise or dialogue with someone, you cannot do it with a liar,” Zelensky said.
According to him, the “fiery” death of the leader of the terrorist Wagner Group was a warning that should be heeded.
Zelensky noted that Prigozhin died after apparently receiving promises of freedom to continue his activities only weeks after the mutiny.
CNN notes that the United States and other key allies of Ukraine continue to supply weapons to Kyiv, emphasizing that the conditions for achieving a “just and strong” peace have not yet been created.
At the same time, several other world leaders, like Brazilian President Lula da Silva, placed “the burden of ending the war” on Ukraine, the TV channel notes.
In support of his position, the Ukrainian leader cited examples of other countries that were attacked by Russia and continue to be partly occupied by Moscow.
“Have you seen any compromise from Putin on other issues? With Georgia? With Moldova?” Zelensky asked rhetorically.
- Zelensky emphasized that to speed up counter-offensive actions, Ukraine needs specific military equipment, in particular modern fighters.
- Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny said that, despite the “crazy resistance” of the invaders, Ukrainian soldiers continue to move forward.
- Zelensky said that Ukraine has information that the dictator Vladimir Putin responsible for the assassination of Wagner terrorist leader Yevgeny Prigozhin.
