Zelensky: Negotiations Only Possible After Russian Withdrawal

SECURITY

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has confirmed that Ukraine has not changed its position on peace negotiations, saying after a meeting with Turkish President Recep Erdogan that, "negotiations with Russia are only possible if Russian forces leave illegally occupied territory in Ukraine."

  • The Ukrainian government is believed to include the peninsula of Crimea annexed by Russia in 2014, and areas of Donbas and Luhansk occupied by Russian backed separatists since 2014, as territories which need to be restored to Kyiv.
  • This claim makes peace talks a distant prospect and a string of attacks behind Russian lines within Crimea suggest that Ukraine is intensifying efforts to regain territory in Southern Ukraine.
  • Zelensky said last week: "Crimea is Ukrainian and we will never give it up... The war in Ukraine began with Crimea and must end with its liberation."
