President Zelensky believes that Putin is delaying the end of the war with questions of church and language
The interview was distributed by the official website of the head of state.
"When people want to end the war, normalize relations, they say: yes, God be with her, with that agenda, let's meet, let's go... President Putin said that he is ready for a meeting, and I believe that there will be a meeting. Today, I do not know the reasons, but they are too delayed. But delaying the issue cannot be solved. I have a very open position here: if you want respect for the Russian language, respect Ukrainian. We want respect for schools," Volodymyr Zelensky said.
"Росією Russia and I are already adults. We understand what we should do behind what. So when they talk about the church or the language, I think: we are at war. Let's solve the question – what comes first? There are specifics: we will end the war, we want to improve relations. How much can it last? The entire generations will (suffer. - Ed.). Whether they want it or not is will become clear later. That's what we're talking about," the president stressed.
