Willing to meet Vladimirputin to end the war: Ukrainian Zelensky in Davos
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday that President Vladimir Putin was the only Russian official who was willing to meet to discuss how to end the war.
Zelensky addressed the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos on a video link and arranged for negotiations with Russia in light of what he said was evidence of Russia’s actions against occupied civilians. He said it was becoming more difficult.
Russia has denied targeting civilians called “special operations” to reduce Ukraine’s military power.
“The President of the Russian Federation decides everything,” Zelensky said through an interpreter. “If we are talking personally about ending this war without him, he can’t make that decision.”
Zelenskiy said genocide was found early in the war, especially in areas occupied by Russian troops outside Kyiv, making it more difficult to arrange negotiations and eliminating discussions with other officials.
