Podolyak mentioned that from Kyiv’s place of check out talks with Moscow would be pointless. “Negotiating with Russia these days would be like retreating when you are successful,” he said. “Loss of Ukraine would be a decline for democracy. Why would you enable democracy lose? If Putin does not drop and the Russian elites really do not modify, then the war will explode with even better drive in a couple of yrs.”
