Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is not afraid of direct dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he said in his interview for Euronews Tuesday, APA reports citing TASS.

"I am not afraid of a direct dialogue with the President of Russia. I think that would be a right thing. If we have an opportunity to talk, and the results of these talks can bring closer the end of the war, then it must be done, regardless of how different people or different regions react to that. If we have no dialogue, then we will have no result," Zelensky said.

According to Zelensky, he spoke with his Russian counterpart before the declaration of ceasefire on July 27, 2020.

"We have discussed complicated issues of ceasefire regime compliance. So far, this dialogue brought results and we see that," the president said.
