Zelensky Says War “Will Only Definitively End Through Diplomacy”

HeadlineMay 23, 2022

This comes as Ukrainian officials give conflicting accounts on the state of negotiations with Russia to end the three-month-long war as Russia intensifies its attack in the eastern Donbas region. On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signaled talks could resume soon, saying fighting “will only definitively end through diplomacy.” Meanwhile, one of Zelensky’s top aides has ruled out more talks until Russia leaves Ukraine and gives up all land seized. In other news on the war, a Russian soldier has been sentenced to life in prison in Ukraine in the first war crimes trial since the invasion. Meanwhile, Russia has cut off gas exports to Finland days after Finland and Sweden formally requested NATO membership.
