HeadlineMay 24, 2022

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday he was willing to negotiate an end to the war — but only through direct talks with Vladimir Putin.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “I cannot accept any kind of meeting with anyone coming from the Russian Federation but the president of the Russian Federation, and only in the case when there is one issue on the table: stopping the war. There are no other grounds for any other kind of meeting.”
