Zelensky at the World Economic Forum in Davos: "I will talk to Putin directly, without a mediator"

Addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that he was ready to talk directly with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and not through a mediator.

If the Russian President "understands the reality", there is a possibility of finding a diplomatic solution to the conflict, Zelensky pointed out. He said that Ukraine would fight to regain all its territory. The Ukrainian President said that Moscow should withdraw its troops to the lines it was on before the invasion was launched.

"It could be the first step towards negotiations," Zelensky said, assessing that Russia is trying to gain time in talks with Ukraine.

He says, referring to the testimonies of the local population, that four civilians were killed and that three of them are in serious condition, reports the Russian agency TASS.
