President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about the proposed meeting with President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky has said they will not compromise their territory in any potential peace deal with Russia.

Speaking to the BBC as the anniversary of the Russian invasion approaches, Zelensky argued that the compromise of the territory could mean Russia’s “return” and that Western-provided weapons bring peace closer. Zelensky also noted that the expected spring attack has already begun.

Zelensky reiterated his call for more military assistance from the West, while noting that Ukrainian forces could resist the Russian advance until a counterattack was carried out. “Of course modern weapons are speeding up the world,” Zelensky told the BBC. “The only language Russia understands is weapons,” he said.

Zelenskiy met with the British Prime Minister and EU leaders last week as part of a quest for international support. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said “everything is on the table” when the Ukrainian leader needs modern combat aircraft. But the Kyiv administration is increasingly concerned about the rate at which Western weapons are coming in. It is stated that it could be weeks before the tanks promised by many Western countries, including Germany, the US and Britain, go to the front last week. Zelensky also responded to a threat from Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko that if even one Ukrainian soldier crosses the border, he will go to war with Russian troops.

“I hope they don’t go to war. “If they enter, we will fight and survive,” he said. Zelensky also said that it would be a “big mistake” to use the territory of Belarus so that Russian troops could attack again.

“He couldn’t refuse to lose his life”
Russian forces launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine 12 months ago, pushing south towards the capital Kyiv but retreating within weeks after inflicting heavy casualties. Asked if he was surprised by Russia’s military tactics, Zelenskiy called him “useless.” According to data released by Ukraine this week, Russian troops in Ukraine are suffering the biggest casualties since the first week of the invasion this month. This data has not been independently verified, but the UK Department of Defense said the trends are “probably” correct.

Zelensky said: “Our survival today is our unity,” and when asked how the war would end, he said: “I believe that Ukraine is fighting for survival.” The Ukrainian leader also stated that his country is moving towards Europe both economically and in terms of value, and said:

“We have chosen this path. We need security guarantees. Any territorial concession makes us a weaker country. The question here is not one of compromise. Why should we be afraid of him? In life, we make millions of compromises every day. Question to whom. Putin? No. Because there is no trust. Dialogue with him? No.’
