Vladimir Putin’s ceasefire supply can’t be trusted, Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president, has mentioned.

The Russian president mentioned in a speech earlier on Friday that Russia would finish the battle in Ukraine if Kyiv agreed to drop its Nato ambitions and hand over everything of 4 provinces claimed by Moscow.

Mr Zelensky dismissed the supply as garbage, saying he believed Putin wouldn’t cease his navy offensive even when his ceasefire calls for have been met.

“These are ultimatum messages that are no different from messages from the past,” the Ukrainian chief informed Italy’s SkyTG24 information channel.

“He will not stop”, Mr Zelensky mentioned, likening Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s expansionist drive earlier than the outbreak of World War II.

”It is identical factor that Hitler used to do (…) This is why we must always not belief these messages,” Mr Zelensky mentioned.
