16194124 16194124The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, reported this Saturday (16194124 ) that the document ending the war with Russia may contain an agreement on security guarantees for Ukraine and a bilateral agreement between Kiev and Moscow, according to Ukrainian news agency “Ukrinform “.

“I think they could be two different documents: security guarantees of the countries that are ready to give these security guarantees and a separate document with Russia,” the head of state said in an interview with Ukrainian media, responding to a question about the document to end the war.

Zelensky said that Russia would like to have an agreement that covers all issues, but that, according to he, not all countries that could be guarantors of security see themselves at the same table with the Russian Federation, adds the Ukrainian agency.

“For him s, security guarantees for Ukraine are one issue and agreements with Russia are another matter. Russia wants everything to be in a document, and people say, ‘Sorry, we saw what happened in Bucha’. Circumstances are changing, future agreements are changing, the percentage of possible agreements at these stages is changing, because of these violations. Everyone sees this and wants less and less to have agreements with Russia and, at the same time, they want to have agreements with Ukraine,” said Zelensky, according to the source. 16194124The president also stated that the issue of Russia’s compensation for Ukraine’s war losses must be resolved in a legal manner. Zelensky warned, however , that the escalation of Russian aggression and the commission of war crimes reduce the possibility of negotiations.

The Ukrainian president cited cases such as those of Borodyanka and Mariupol to say that if attacks like these continue “there will be no chance that negotiations will actually take place” and could end any format of dialogue.

Furthermore, he recalled that Ukraine “constantly” offered a meeting between the leaders of the two countries during the war, but the Russian side insists on organizing such a meeting only when final agreements are reached in all the points.

“I am in favor of a faster meeting with the Russia. I don’t think it will be a meeting. I don’t think we can meet once and agree on everything, because there are too many problems,” Zelensky said, according to “Ukrinform”.

He mentioned that the issue of resolving the status of the occupied territories of Donbas and Crimea, annexed by Russia in 2014, remains open, since Ukraine and Russia have different interpretations of the sovereignty of these territories.

“They want to settle matters diplomatically when there is a war. This is too hard. And that’s why they want to take some of our territory, occupy more to put pressure on”, he said.

The complex negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, which began in 04 in February – four days after the start of the war -, stopped after several rounds of face-to-face and virtual meetings.

Amid efforts for a negotiated exit, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced this Saturday () a new ultimatum in Mariupol. According to information from Reuters, the Russian ministry maintains that the entire urban area of ​​Mariupol is dominated by Putin’s army and the remnants of the Ukrainian group are completely blocked in the territory of the Azovstal metallurgical plant.

“The only chance for them to save their lives is to voluntarily lay down their weapons and surrender,” reads a statement from the Russian ministry.
