Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has invited former President Donald Trump to visit Ukraine.
Zelenskyy made the invitation in response to Trump’s promise to end the war in Ukraine within 24 hours if reelected.
“I invite President Trump. If he can come here, I will need … 24 minutes to explain to President Trump that he can’t manage this war,” Zelenskyy said. “He can’t bring peace because of Putin.”
Zelenskyy also commented on ongoing talks between the US, Europe, and Russia regarding peace negotiations.
The Ukrainian leader expressed his reluctance to begin dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin, citing a lack of trust.
Zelenskyy also warned that without increased support for Ukraine, American soldiers could be drawn into a wider European conflict.
“If Russia will kill all of us, they will attack NATO countries, and you will send your sons and daughters [to fight],” Zelenskyy pressed.
“The price is high, like I said,” he said. “But we are not ready to give our freedom to this f—— terrorist Putin. That’s it. That’s why we are fighting.”
There has been an ongoing debate in Congress over whether or not to continue aid to Ukraine and Israel, and if so, how much is necessary.
Zelenskyy emphasized that Ukraine is determined not to give in to Russian aggression and rejected the idea that the war has reached a stalemate.
“I don’t think that this is a stalemate. … We have done a lot. We had a very difficult situation. They thought that they would checkmate us, but this didn’t happen.”
