"No one wants war to the last soldier": Ukrainian diplomat suggests meeting with Putin

Ukrainian diplomat offers Scholz to meet with Putin

Ukraine's Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk said that the West should make more diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine. The diplomat, in particular, suggested the idea of holding talks with Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin.

Melnyk believes that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz can meet with the main war criminal of the Russian Federation. He said this in an interview with the German NTV.

According to him, Western politicians should support Ukraine more. He also noted that it is not only about the military component, but also about the diplomatic one.

"I still hope that our allies will come to the realization that Ukraine needs to be supported much more. Not only in military terms, but also in diplomatic terms," Melnyk said.

He emphasized that over the past two years, any diplomatic efforts have been "practically absent." However, Melnyk explained that he could not say for what specific purpose negotiations with Russia should be pursued.

"No one in Ukraine wants to fight this war to the last soldier. For us, it is about preserving our statehood. This is the whole point," the diplomat emphasized.

At the same time, the ambassador said that holding talks does not mean listening to the lies of the Kremlin leader. It is, in particular, a strategic diplomatic initiative that should try to challenge Putin.

"Of course, it's not enough for Olaf Scholz to call Putin, listen to his tales and lies, and then say: I at least tried, it doesn't make any sense, I'd rather not do this to myself anymore. Goodbye. Why doesn't Mr. Scholz meet with Putin? He doesn't need to invite him to Germany for a beer or fly to Moscow himself. There have been meetings, for example, in Iceland, where people talked about Taheles behind closed doors," the diplomat explained.

Melnyk said that the diplomatic initiative may not be limited to the United States, the United Kingdom, and European countries. He is confident that countries such as China and Brazil can be involved in the negotiation process so that they do not wait for the big battle to end, but take action on their own.

Earlier it was reported that dictator Vladimir Putin is checking whether the United States is ready to participate in negotiations to end Russia's war in Ukraine. However, his interlocutors do not believe in his intentions.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the Russian Foreign Ministry again started talking about peace talks with Ukraine and its readiness to "listen to all those interested in justice." They said that the Kremlin is allegedly ready to discuss any serious proposal that would guarantee the national interests of the Russian Federation in the first place.
