Zelensky: If all parties want to end war in Donbas, it will end tomorrow

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the war in Donbas may end once all the parties to the conflict want this.

“We have not yet been able to achieve a complete ceasefire and still lose our citizens. But I'm not accidentally saying "yet." I am sure that if all parties want to end the war, it will end tomorrow. Ukraine defends its land,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said, answering the question by WEF founder Klaus Schwab at a public session in Davos, the President’s press service reports.

At the same time, the Head of State reminded that, despite the blocking of the Normandy format summit in previous years, the meeting of the Normandy Four leaders still took place. And at the end of last year, an important agreement on the release of 76 illegally detained Ukrainians was implemented.

“I am really pleased that the Normandy format meeting was finally held in December thanks to our team, after three years of blocking the meeting. I am grateful to the partners - both Germany and France - for supporting this meeting,” Zelensky said.

On December 9, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met with President of France Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin at the Élysée Palace in Paris.
