Zelensky favors diplomatic way of resolving conflict between Ukraine, Russia

     

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed a wish to pursue the path of diplomacy to resolve the conflict with Russia.

     

“I want to stop the war and end it. There is a diplomatic path and a military one. Any healthy person always chooses the diplomatic path because they know that even if it’s difficult, it could stop the losses of thousands, tens of thousands and with such neighbors – hundreds of thousands, and maybe even millions of victims. This is not wanted,” Zelensky said at a press conference in Kyiv on Saturday.

      

“And any leader, whether he wants it or not, has no right to cancel the diplomatic path,” he said.

       

At the same time, he said that if people are killed in Mariupol and a referendum is held in pseudo-republics, Ukraine will withdraw from the negotiation process.

    • I’m so glad you’ve changed your opinion Mike. I understand wanting negotiations but you can’t negotiate with a habitual liar. As the saying goes, “Lie to me once, shame on you. Lie to me twice, shame on me.” It’s like hearing “I do!” from a woman that has been divorced 12 times. 😉

  1. I saw some of that press conference. The ball is in putler’s court. If there is a sham referendum in Kherson, or a genocide of the people in the steel works, the negotiations end and the war goes to the bitter end.
    Zel had no other choice. Support from the allies is only a fraction of what it should be. If putler wins, Ukraine is in mortal danger. If Ukraine wins, Ukraine is still in mortal danger because the nazi rat may be tempted to use WMD’s or tactical nukes.
    Only Biden can fix this: he must say right now: “your genocidal actions have forced us to reconsider our position. From now on, NOTHING is off the table. Remove your occupiers now, or face the consequences.”

  2. The Ukrainian population will not accept a diplomatic solution if it involves giving away territory. I think Zel knows that but he needs to show he’s open to diplomacy just for show. IMHO!

    • IMO Zelensky just wants to get Hitler at the table so he can size him up and piss him off in public. At least that’s my desire, lol. He MUST know Putin is 100% incapable of honoring any agreement. Even if he didn’t find a tiny loophole he would make one as he did with Budapest.
