Conceding land would mean Russia could “keep coming back.”
Rightly so in my opinion, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has ruled out giving up any of his country’s territory in a potential peace deal with Russia. In an interview with the BBC he said:
“We chose this path. We want security guarantees. Any territorial compromises would make us weaker as a state. It’s not about compromise itself. Why would we be afraid of that? We have millions of compromises in life every day. The question is with whom? With Putin? No. Because there’s no trust. Dialogue with him? No. Because there’s no trust.”
