KYIV (Reuters) – Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Friday said all-out war with Russia was a possibility, adding that he wanted to have a substantive meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“I think there can be,” Zelenskiy said when asked if there was a real possibility of all out-war with Russia, speaking at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) summit. “This is the worst thing that there can be, but unfortunately there is such a possibility,” he added, speaking in Ukrainian.
Zelenskiy said relations with the United States were better than before but Ukraine had not received a clear position on whether it could join the NATO military alliance.
