Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, on Wednesday morning that “difficult” peace talks with Russia are moving ahead, albeit slowly. He also used his video address to discuss his interactions with Western leaders.
Among the other topics Zelensky touched upon in his were his talks with the president of Slovakia, Zuzana Caputova, concerning Ukrainian security and help from the EU, as well as a discussion with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in which Zelensky informed him about, what he described as, the dire humanitarian situation in the country, as they continued to “coordinate their positions” before the upcoming NATO and G7 summits.
“Difficult? Yes, very. Sometimes unseemly, but we are moving forward step by step,” he said about the process with Russia, adding that talks are conducted almost every day.
The Ukrainian president also spoke about the humanitarian efforts and evacuations his country was providing to cities caught up in Moscow’s offensive.
