Zelensky says Putin’s ceasefire proposal for Ukraine is unreliable

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ceasefire proposal is an ultimatum that cannot be trusted, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday (14).

Putin said in a speech earlier in the day that Russia would end the war in Ukraine if Kiev agreed to abandon its ambitions to join NATO, the Western military alliance, and hand over all four provinces claimed by Moscow.

Speaking to Italy’s SkyTG24 news channel on the sidelines of the G7 summit, Zelensky said he believed Putin would not end his military offensive even if his demands for a ceasefire were met.

“These are ultimatum messages that are no different from the messages of the past,” said the Ukrainian leader in comments translated and transmitted in Italian through an interpreter.

“He won’t stop,” Zelensky warned of Putin, drawing a parallel with German Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s expansionist drive before the start of World War II.

“It’s the same thing Hitler used to do. (…) This is why we should not trust these messages,” he added.
