NewsweeK: Zelensky Gives Russian Dissidents Another Reason to Unite to Get Rid Of Putin

Ukraine is prepared to negotiate with Russia to end their ongoing conflict once Russian President Vladimir Putin is out of office, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday.

More than eight months after Russia invaded Ukraine, the two countries continue to battle. While leaders from both Russia and Ukraine have named their terms for peace talks to begin, negotiations continue to stall.

On Monday, Mykhailo Podolya, an adviser to Zelensky, tweeted that Ukraine “never refused to negotiate” an end to the conflict, noting their longstanding position that they would only negotiate after Russia withdraws its troops from the entirety of Ukraine.
