The Ukrainian president has told that he is "not interested" in meeting Vladimir Putin for peace talks, describing him as a "nobody" who lives in an "information bubble" and does not really know what's happening on the battlefield, APA reports citing Sky News.
In an exclusive interview with Kay Burley, Volodymyr Zelenskyy also responded to speculation of a Russian offensive in Ukraine in the coming weeks, and recalled the first moments of the invasion.
He said he "doesn't understand who makes decisions in Russia" and while Moscow asks for peace, it then lies by attacking his country with missiles at night.
"They don't want any talks, and this was the case before the invasion. President Putin decided so. He doesn't want negotiations because he doesn't want peace. I am convinced that Ukraine is just the first step for him. I am convinced that he is waging a big war. And having the whole world helping Ukraine now - he is not thinking about that. He is thinking, 'Well, it's not working out in Ukraine now but we will wait the world won't stay united, they will get tired and I will move further".
"But after Ukraine there will be further steps, there will be other countries, if we fail to withstand. I think we will manage, we will get support and we will win," he said.
