Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kuleba said that Kyiv will not agree to the alienation of part of its territory
Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba rejected the possibility of alienating part of the country’s territory. He stated in an interview with Bild newspaper that Kyiv will not take such a step, conveys TASS.
“We will not go for the alienation of part of the territory. We are ready for diplomacy, but we will not allow it to simply prolong our suffering and only delay the next phase of the war,” the Foreign Minister stressed.
Kuleba noted that his task is to deliver as many weapons as possible to Ukraine and initiate the maximum number of sanctions against Russia. He also pointed to the need to help Ukrainians who fled abroad.
The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry also assessed the chances of reaching a ceasefire agreement with Moscow. He said he saw “nothing wrong with the truce” if it was a step towards the “liberation of Ukrainian territory.”
Kuleba also expressed regret that the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz spent little time on him during his visit to Berlin. He recalled that the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky arranged an official meeting for German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock, when she was the first in the Cabinet of Ministers of the country since the beginning of the Russian military operation to visit Kyiv.
Earlier, on May 13, the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spent in Germany meeting with colleagues from the G7 countries. He discussed with foreign colleagues the supply of weapons to Kyiv, sanctions against Moscow, the confiscation of Russian assets, as well as the deblocking of Ukrainian ports.
