“Weapons are the only language Russia understands”
In an interview with BBC, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he believes that Ukraine is fighting for its survival and is moving towards Europe, economically and through its values.
“We chose this path. We want security guarantees. Any territorial compromises would make us weaker as a state. It’s not about compromise itself. Why would we be afraid of that? We have millions of compromises in life every day. The question is — with whom? With Putin? No. Because there’s no trust. Dialogue with him? No. Because there’s no trust,” he said.
Zelenskyy warned conceding land would mean Russia could “keep coming back,” while Western weapons would bring peace closer.
“Of course, modern weapons speed up peace. Weapons are the only language Russia understands,” Zelenskyy told the BBC.
