President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasizes that the Ukrainian army is ready for any scenario, but the details will not be disclosed. The President made this statement to the media following a meeting with the Presidents of Poland and Lithuania in Kyiv.
"Only I and our army will know the clear steps regarding the defense of our state. And believe me, we are ready for anything," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
The Head of State noted that he could not predict the personal decisions of the President of Russia or the actions of Russian-controlled formations in the occupied territories of Donbas.
According to him, since the Budapest Memorandum is no longer working, Ukraine needs new security guarantees.
"It is no secret that Budapest is not working. We clearly understand that currently Ukraine is not in any of the security alliances. We protect Ukraine ourselves with the support of our partners. But it is Ukrainians who are dying. That is why Ukraine needs security guarantees, clear, concrete, right now,” the President said.
"It is very important to have the support of other partners. And given that we now have 150,000 Russian troops on the border, temporarily occupied territories, I believe that Russia should be among those countries that provide clear security guarantees. It is no secret, I have repeatedly invited the President of Russia to sit down at the negotiating table and speak. Because this is a matter of dialogue, not a matter of conditions," Volodymyr Zelenskyy added.
