He affirms that the Russian military is cannon fodder and regrets that Moscow “does not care about casualties”
Jan. 26 () –
Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky reiterated this Thursday his refusal to negotiate with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, until he orders the final departure of Russian troops from the country.
In this sense, he stressed that the talks “will only be possible if Russia withdraws its soldiers, admits its mistake and names a new government”, as he pointed out during an interview with the British television channel Sky News.
“Only then would it be possible,” he said before emphasizing that meeting with Putin “would not make any sense.” “For me this is not interesting, neither to meet nor to speak,” she has maintained. “They do not want to talk. That was their position even before the invasion. It is what Putin decided,” she said.
In this sense, he has warned that Ukraine “is only a first step for Putin”. “Before the war, there were meetings. I saw a man who said that he was going to do one thing and did another. For me, right now, he is nobody”, he continued.
On the other hand, he has accused Russia of sending soldiers who serve as “cannon fodder” to war. “They don’t care about the casualties,” she has asserted, although he has admitted the strong pressure exerted by the British Army in the Zaporizhia region.
“It’s an extraordinary number. They don’t even care. I mean, they don’t take into account their own people… But from what we’ve seen and counted, there are thousands of dead on their side and they just keep sending them, throwing them and they throw”, has had an impact.
