Zelensky says there will be no betrayal at Normandy Four summit

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that there will be no betrayal at a meeting of the leaders of the Normandy Four countries and called on Ukrainians to trust him.

He stated this in a video recorded during a workout on Monday, December 2.

“There has been and there can be no betrayal. But I will be more confident at this meeting if I know that my country trusts me, that behind my back is our whole independent people,” Zelensky said, addressing Ukrainians.

He urged everyone not to believe politicians or political parties talking about a possible “betrayal” of Ukraine’s interests at the upcoming Normandy Four summit.

“Don’t believe anyone. Nobody can go anywhere with war. Nobody wants to go and lose hundreds of thousands more. We can’t allow that. Therefore, only diplomacy. And if there is no such dialogue, what will they say: ‘What else could Zelensky discuss with Putin?’ You know, that is possible without this dialogue, but it’s like running on this treadmill, meaning you’re doing something, you’re losing calories, but you remain in the same place. We don’t want to remain in the same place. We want to end it all, and we’ll again be a great country of Ukraine,” Zelensky said.

The Normandy Four summit is to be held in Paris on December 9.

    • Its hard to tell and I think that’s one of his problems with the media. Speeches and answering questions are quite different, but the policy should be the same. Thus far we aren’t getting that from Zelensky.
