“There can be no dialogue with this leader of Russia, who has no future”
During an urgently-called G7 meeting, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy called for a symmetrical response to Russia’s actions.
“When Russia attacks the energy sector and energy stability of our countries, we must block its energy sector with sanctions, break the stability of Russian revenues from oil and gas trade,” said Ukraine’s president. According to him, such steps will encourage Russia to think about the unprofitability of war.
President Zelenskyy also ruled out the possibility of holding peace talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Talks can be either with another head of Russia – who will comply with the UN Charter, the basic principles of humanity and the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” added Zelenskyy.
G7 leaders held an emergency meeting on October 11, 2022, after Russia launched massive missile attacks across the entire territory of Ukraine a day prior.
