"His word is worthless": Zelenskyy confirms he will not compromise with Putin. Video

Zelenskyy says the dictator does not need peace in Ukrainene

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has ruled out the possibility of reaching compromises with Russian dictator Volodymyr Putin. The head of the Ukrainian state noted that the Russian president does not need peace in Ukraine, so negotiations with him do not make sense.

Zelenskyy made the statement in an interview with Latin American media during a visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 10. "First of all, he (Putin - Ed.) does not need peace. When we want to solve a problem, we must understand that all parties need it. We want to end the war," he said.

The President added that he does not imagine negotiations with Putin or the Russian side regarding people living in the occupied territories.

"How can I negotiate with Putin? Let's forget for a second that he is a murderer. The Russian side? How can I negotiate with him about people who are in some towns and villages that have been occupied, who live there? And here two people or two teams sit down and say: go away. Who are we to decide where a person should live, who they should be, what language they should speak, what flag they should respect? Who are we?" Zelenskyy explained.

According to the Constitution, the president must protect the rights and freedoms of people, help and liberate them from the occupiers. There should be citizens who are ready to take up arms and help Ukrainians in the occupation, Zelenskyy added.

The Head of State recalled that in 2014, after Russia seized the territories of Donbas, Putin assured that there would be no full-scale attack on Ukraine. The Kremlin leader's excuse then was alleged "help for Russian speakers."

"Everything he says is not true. He is not interested in an independent Ukraine, he needs Ukraine as a part, an enclave of Russia, as he did with Belarus, as he did with Moldova, Georgia. Everywhere, as in our country, he seizes a part of an integral territory so that there is no stability and then comes to take over the whole thing. Ukraine is just a big country, and he failed. So what compromises could there be? Who is he? I cannot trade people. And with whom? With a person whose word is worthless. These are not guarantees," Zelenskyy said.
