Zelensky Ready to Make Concessions with Russia — Will Discuss Adopting a Neutral Status for Ukraine and Will Agree to Promises on Crimea (VIDEO)

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy held an interview Sunday with several Russian journalists. Zelensky admitted during the interview that Ukraine is ready to discuss adopting a neutral status as part of its peace deal with Russia. Ukraine is also willing to guarantee a non-nuclear status.

Zelensky spoke in Russian during the interview like he has done in the past with Russian-speaking news outlets.

Ukraine is prepared to discuss adopting a neutral status as part of a peace deal with Russia but such a pact would have to be guaranteed by third parties and put to a referendum, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in remarks aired on Sunday.

Zelenskiy was speaking to Russian journalists in a 90-minute video call, an interview that Moscow authorities had pre-emptively warned Russian media to refrain from reporting. Zelenskiy spoke in Russian throughout, as he has done in previous speeches when targeting a Russian audience.

Zelenskiy said Russia’s invasion had caused the destruction of Russian-speaking cities in Ukraine, with damage worse than the Russian wars in Chechnya.

“Security guarantees and neutrality, non-nuclear status of our state. We are ready to go for it. This is the most important point,” Zelenskiy said.

Zelensky also said there would be no retaking of Crimea by force.
