Ukrainian President Zelensky agrees to meet Putin to stop war

Tension still persists between Russia and Ukraine


Ukraine’s President Zelensky on Saturday called for a meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin to “end the war”. “I think whoever started this war will be able to end it,” the Ukrainian president told a news conference at the metro station, adding that if Putin leads to a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine, He is “not afraid to meet.” Zelensky said, “From the very beginning, I have insisted on dialogue with the Russian president.


Ukraine’s President Zelensky said, “It’s not that I want to meet him, I want to meet him so that this conflict can be resolved through diplomatic means. We trust our allies, but we have no confidence in Russia.” “President Volodymyr Zelensky also informed that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will visit Ukraine’s capital Kyiv on Sunday. He told reporters that US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin would also visit.

This will be the first official visit by US government officials since the February 24 attacks. However, a US State Department official declined to comment. Zelensky denounced UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ plans to visit Moscow on Tuesday ahead of Kyiv. “It is wrong to go to Russia first and then Ukraine,” he said, adding, “There is no justice and no logic in this.”

Zelensky reiterated his warning that he would break talks if Russia killed the remaining Ukrainian troops in the Black Sea port of Mariupol. “If our people are killed in Mariupol and if these pseudo-referendums are held in the (southern) region of Kherson, Ukraine will withdraw from any negotiation process,” Ukrainian officials said earlier on Saturday. Russia was accused of foiling a new effort to evacuate civilians from Mariupol.
