Zelenskyy says Ukraine ready to negotiate with Russia

Ukraine is ready for negotiations with Russia, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in an interview with PBS NewsHour.

He said that Ukraine offered the peace formula to the world: "Currently, there are already first steps with specifics.

In mid-June, there will be a peace summit in Switzerland, and, there, we will prepare and elaborate on a plan to end this war. This summit will take place without Russia, for Russia not to block this plan.”

According to Zelenskyy, currently, Russia wants to destroy Ukraine: "Currently, Russia wants no negotiations. That is why the initiative should come from Ukraine, the country that wants to end this war in a fair peace.”

Zelenskyy also spoke about his children in response to the reporter’s question:

"I sometimes look at our children, and not only my own children but the children of those families at war and those children currently in Ukraine.

"I think they know all the answers. And, frankly speaking, if they would be answering your questions today, who knows? Maybe they would be wiser. They're very grown up. They have been through a lot. They understand everything, and they know everything. When they ask questions, they still ask in a childlike way.

"It's not a question of when this war is going to end. They understand that it depends on many factors, and it's not a question of whether Ukraine will be able to withstand this fight. They know it depends on many things, but Ukraine will definitely withstand. They are very strong.”
