The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, spoke to CNN about the Wagner Group's incitement in Russia and the fact that Vladimir Putin was helpless. Zelenskyy believes that Putin has no control and that his power is weakening day by day.
"We also see Putin's reaction to everything. It is weak. The first thing we see is that he does not control everything. Wagner moved deep into Russia and by occupying certain regions they showed how easy it is to do. Putin does not control the situation in these regions.
All that vertical the power he had is only collapsing," Zelenskyy said. A leak of information regarding the Ukrainian president's meeting with CIA chief Bill Burns surprised him. Their conversation is believed to lead to big changes, and "dangerous things are happening behind the scenes".
In his fight against Russia, Zelenskyy knows the importance of such individuals. "I was surprised when the media published information about my meeting with Bill Burns. My communication with the head of the CIA should always be behind the scenes.
We talk about important things. We have good relations with the CIA and we talk," the Ukrainian president said. .
Zelenskyy: We cannot imagine Ukraine without Crimea
According to Zelenskyy, Ukraine must return Crimea. He finds it impossible to imagine a country without Crimea.
'Peace' is not an option for him in such circumstances. "We cannot imagine Ukraine without Crimea. As long as Crimea is under occupation, it means only one thing - the war is not over yet. If we get peace without Crimea, then it will not be a victory," concluded Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
In these conditions, it is difficult to expect that peace will come soon. Vladimir Putin is ready to do everything to achieve his goals, while the Ukrainian president wants to return the "lost". This story could take a long time, and the biggest victims in everything will be the soldiers on both sides, but also the civilians of Ukraine.
