According to him, the Russian Federation is afraid of real negotiations and is not going to fulfill any international obligations.

“He lies to everyone, as is typical for aggressors. For terrorists,” Zelensky said.

He noted that when Russia talks about negotiations, it only wants to slow down its retreat by wintering in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and prepare forces for an attempted new offensive.

“For new Butches, new Izyums. Or at least secure fortification on the occupied land and covert mobilization of the house. We cannot agree to a postponed war. For it will be even hotter than now,” he said.

The head of state stressed that Ukraine needs weapons, equipment, shells and long-range offensive weapons in sufficient quantities to liberate the occupied territories. He also said that the country needs air defense systems and financial support.
