Ukraine being pushed to end conflict with Russia on unfavorable terms - Zelensky

MOSCOW. June 6 (Interfax) - Ukraine is being prompted to agree to an option for putting an end to the conflict with Russia on terms that are unfavorable to it, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.

"I haven't held any negotiations on any plans, such negotiations are at the zero level for now. Of course, everyone would like to slightly push us as much as possible toward some result, which would certainly be disadvantageous to us, because we haven't been asked thus far, but advantageous to some parties having their own interests. Again, they are different, both financial and political," Ukrainian media quoted Zelensky as saying in a conversation with journalists on Monday.

The international community is growing increasingly tired of the situation, "and the people want some result for themselves, but we need a result for ourselves," he said.

"That said, I haven't discussed any structure of settling the problem that would produce a result positive [for Ukraine]," Zelensky said.

At the same time, he said he is convinced that Ukraine needs to work "with all European countries and world countries."
