Meeting of the Presidents of the US and Russia: expectation of Volodymyr Zelenskyy
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed concern over the meeting of US and Russian Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin. One of them is the lack of specifics.
“First, there will be no specifics. And the situation in Ukraine depends on it. Why? I am grateful to all our partners – European countries, the United States, they really help. I spoke to Prime Minister Johnson, he is a very cool man. He asked what else he could do for Ukraine. I told him about specific things and I’m sure he will communicate like other leaders. However, I feel that everyone is afraid of solving the most difficult issues. I have always linked the final solution to the problem at the level of who is responsible and when. It seems to me that this specificity will not be discussed”, – the head of state said.
When asked by journalists, Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed fear that “Putin and Biden can agree on Ukraine without Ukraine”. The president said: “Do not decide for Ukraine without Ukraine. I think this is a fair thing”.
“Unfortunately, it doesn’t work completely. An urgent issue for Donbas remains, and they will talk about it. I think there is nothing terrible in this. But it is impossible to decide for Ukraine. I’m sure it’s unrealistic. And what they will say without us is clear. We are not invited to this meeting, so I think there will be no concrete results”, – Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
