Zelensky: Ukrainians against me speaking with Putin

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated on Friday, speaking at the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI), that the people of Ukraine are "not eager" for him to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Nevertheless, Zelensky underscored that "we have to face reality." He added that the only reason he is still insisting to speak with Russia's president is "for our country to return to peaceful life and avoid the international food crisis that is unfolding right now."

The head of state said that he has tried to organize direct talks with Putin "several times", however, without any success. Zelensky underlined that Ukraine wants to "live [again] and not just exist."
