Zelenskyy’s quote: "The questions I would discuss with the President of the Russian Federation solely - and I mean solely - concern issues that interest me solely as President of Ukraine. That is the question of territorial integrity. And these are the issues I would discuss with him - how our Ukrainian Donbas will live and how our Crimea will live going forward. How we can agree, at what point we can agree on this, and whether we can do it at all."

Details: The President said that the most important thing now is that Ukraine is raising this issue and is even hearing Russia beginning to respond.

"This dialogue has started - not the way we like it, but it has started. I think that the dialogue (with Putin - ed.) would be very substantive", Zelenskyy concluded.
