“I completely understand, Volodymyr, why you and your people do not want to compromise with Putin.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday he fully shared his position with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on how Ukraine should “move forward to achieve victory over the Russian occupiers”. He said this in Kyiv at a press conference he held with Johnson after their trial.

Zelensky assessed that their discussion was “as thorough as possible”. We have reviewed all the major issues in bilateral relations, the overall picture of Europe and the world. In the first place the two most important: the issue of protection and security. We discussed the current situation on the eastern front line of the country and in the southern regions, our capabilities in defense against Russian aggression. We have a common position on how to move towards victory. “Because this is the result that Ukraine needs: the victory of our state,” said the Ukrainian president.

Zelensky thanked the British Prime Minister for his understanding of Ukraine’s arms needs. He said there is talk that Ukraine needs more heavy weapons and air defense systems. He added that progress has been made on this issue.

Johnson said at the press conference that he fully understood why the Ukrainian people were not ready to compromise with Russian President Vladimir Putin. We pay tribute to the heroism and courage of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. I fully understand, Volodymyr, why you and your people do not want to compromise with Putin.

He noted, however, that “all indications and evidence” indicate that Russian forces are also under severe pressure. They also suffer heavy losses and are simply wasting their weapons to an enormous extent. The British Prime Minister explained that during the 114 days of continuous offensive, Ukraine had not achieved its goals for the first week yet.
