Ukrainian President Zelensky: There is a Possibility of a Full-Scale War with Russia
OREANDA-NEWS. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy believes that for his country there is a possibility of a full-scale war with Russia.
A question about this was asked by the moderator of the YES Brainstorming forum, which takes place in Kiev.
"I think maybe. There is potential in this topic. This will be Russia's biggest mistake, after that there will never be a neighborhood between Russia, Ukraine, Belarus," Zelensky said.
In his opinion, states have become enemies because of Moscow's actions in the media field.
“The problem is that Russia's information policy today is about disrespect for the independence of Ukraine. And the problem is not in the choice of one or another political strategist who introduced this narrative about the to the Russians after that it broke, "Zelensky says.
Speaking about the attitude towards Vladimir Putin, he said that "there is not enough time to think about him."
"Let his country and he not be offended. I am more interested in whether we can meet substantively. Not declaratively, as he does with some countries, but really meet more substantively than it was at the first meeting in the Normandy format," Zelensky added.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said earlier that Kiev is ready for a meeting between the two leaders, but Moscow is avoiding it. Dmitry Peskov, the representative of the Russian President, noted that Putin clearly confirmed his interest, since relations between the countries need to be improved, but "mutual political will is not visible." At the same time, the RIA Novosti diplomatic source said that the Ukrainian side did not send an official proposal.
