As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues even on the 43rd day, Republic’s Arnab Goswami interviews Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
As Russia’s aggression in Ukraine escalates for the 43rd day, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke to Republic Media Network’s Editor-In-Chief Arnab Goswami regarding the current turmoil in the former Soviet nation. During his conversation with Arnab Goswami, President Zelenskyy invited India to become a security guarantor for Ukraine. He further mentioned that security guarantees in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin could be a ‘parallel process.’
“We need security guarantees from countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Turkey, Germany, and Poland, who can be security guarantors. I also invite India to be a security guarantor if they’d be willing,” Zelenskyy said.
Zelensky went on to say, “Security guarantees in talks with Putin could be a parallel process and we should not delay or slow down the dialogue by any meetings. We know some of the countries are ready to extend security guarantees to Ukraine. It would be better before the meeting with the President to have some clear agreements on which countries are ready to make some commitments. Not to have just meetings for the sake of having meetings but to have some specifics. We are ready to have the process in parallel format so that we won’t have to wait until we have the meeting in one or two years. We don’t want the war to continue for so long.”
