Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was “not interested” in meeting his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for peace talks in an interview with Sky News that aired on Thursday.
Asked whether the war in Ukraine could be resolved through peace talks with Putin, Zelensky said: “It’s not interesting to me. It is not interesting to meet, it is not interesting to talk.”
“After a full-scale invasion, for me [Putin] it’s nobody,” Zelensky said when asked if it was too late for peace talks.
Zelensky told Sky News that there were far more casualties on the Russian side than Ukraine, adding that “in the east, they are losing a huge number of people, a huge number, but they don’t care. They are not counting people, that’s a fact. We’re counting their people.”
During the interview, which was taped on Wednesday, Zelensky learned that Germany had agreed to send German-made Leopard 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine after weeks of diplomatic pressure on Berlin to do so.
Zelensky said he was “very pleased” but also said the timeframe in which they were delivered to the war-torn nation was “critical”.
