Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the occupied Crimea could be returned under the control of Ukraine through diplomacy. He stated this in an interview with Reuters.
This can happen. ;Of course, people in Ukraine are more supportive of the diplomatic way of resolving this issue. [But] what circle of people will discuss this issue and when, I cannot say now.
Head of State answered questions about the prospects for the return of Crimea by Ukraine, given the fact that a large number of Russian troops are stationed on the peninsula.
Zelensky stressed that Ukraine “can live in peace [only] if it regains all its land.”
There is no other chance, there is simply no way out, we need deo occupy the territory.
BAGNET notes that in the first weeks of the war, the Ukrainian authorities allowed the search for a “compromise”; with Russia on the issue of the ownership of the Crimea and offered, in particular, to abandon the military solution of the issue for 15 years. Now in Kyiv they allow negotiations with Moscow only after the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territories.
