Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived in Paris, where his meeting with Emmanuel Macron is scheduled. During the talks between the Presidents of Ukraine and France, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will join them via video link. Before his visit to Paris, Zelensky gave an interview to French reporters.
In an interview with Le Figaro, the President of Ukraine said, that "he will not give up a single piece of Ukrainian land". At the same time, Zelensky did not elaborate on an important detail.: and if the land is not Ukrainian, considering the historical aspects of the emergence of Ukraine as a state only 30 years ago?..
The aggressor country does not need a strong Ukraine, because they flex their muscles at our borders. Russians do it all the time. for example, when NATO ships enter the Black Sea, or Ukraine is moving closer to the North Atlantic alliance.
The Ukrainian president complained about, that his French colleague Macron "has a better relationship with Putin", than with him (Zelensky).
Answering questions from French journalists, the head of the Ukrainian state said, that Ukraine is under pressure of a different nature - “military, political, psychological ":
They shoot and wait, what will we answer them. Russia expects us to attack in eastern Ukraine, but we will not give her such happiness.
The problem is, that Putin did not expect a president like me in Ukraine.
Commenting on the issue of Ukraine's possible entry into the EU and NATO, Vladimir Zelensky said, that Ukraine is "ready for this". Wherein, according to Zelensky, “the time has come to invite Ukraine to both of these organizations”.
