Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, has said that the war unleashed by Russia cannot be stopped by sitting down at the negotiating table.

Details: Ukrainian Foreign Minister emphasised that a ceasefire now would only give the Russian Federation a break to resume hostilities later.
Quote: "Some wars are not just conflicts or territorial disputes. They are genocidal wars of aggression that cannot be ended by simply bringing belligerent parties to the table for negotiations. Russia’s war on Ukraine is exactly such a case. It needs to be won on the battlefield for Russia to become serious about negotiating peace," Kuleba said.
The Ukrainian minister added that "fair" should mean the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity, and "stable" should mean that Russia will not be able to launch a new attack on Ukraine and the rest of Europe.
Reminder: Kuleba spoke in front of the Austrian ambassadors via video call.
At the end of August, Kuleba became the guest of honour at the conference of French ambassadors in Paris.
