Zelensky spoke in Russian during the interview, as he had done in the past with Russian-speaking news outlets.
Ukraine is ready to negotiate a neutral position as part of a peace deal with Russia but such a deal would have to be ratified by a third party and a referendum will be held, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a statement issued on Sunday.
Zelensky was speaking to Russian journalists in a 90-minute video call, an interview in which Moscow authorities warned Russian media in advance to refrain from reporting. Zelensky spoke in Russian, as he had done in previous speeches aimed at Russian audiences.
Zelensky said Russia’s aggression had destroyed Russian-speaking cities in Ukraine, and that the damage was worse than the Russian war in Chechnya.
“Assurance of security and neutrality, the non-nuclear state of our state. We’re ready to go for it. This is the most important point, “said Zelensky.
Zelensky added that Crimea would not be restored by force.
Zelensky says Crimea will not be reclaimed by force. Ukrainians are sick of war and destruction. This is not a hurray war; This is a national tragedy.
