'Finland-2' doesn't happen: Kuleba: Ukraine does not sign agreement with renunciation of territories

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has rejected the possibility of signing a peace agreement with Moscow in exchange for giving up part of Ukrainian territory.

This was reported by El Diario, according to Ukrinform.

Kuleba praised the support Ukraine has received in the fight against Russian aggression. Therefore, he said, the terms of peace for Ukraine cannot resemble the Moscow Peace Treaty signed in 1940 with Finland.

"We are not going to sign an agreement similar to the one signed by Finland," Kuleba said.

Kuleba added that having survived a full-scale invasion, won various battles and gained support, Ukraine "has every chance to get different peace conditions" than it did during the Soviet-'Finland war, the Russia-Georgia war in 2008 or Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

"Ukraine's victory and EU membership will lead us to success," he said.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky assured that he knew nothing about any agreements that would force Ukraine to 'exchange' its territories and insisted that the Russians must be punished.
