“When someone talks about ‘diplomatic settlement’, they are actually proposing Ukraine to fulfill Russia’s ultimatum: ‘give away territories, admit defeat’. Ukrainian people will never agree to this. Therefore, a request: stop offering Ukraine capitulation disguised as ‘diplomacy’,” Podolyak wrote.
As Ukrinform reported, in late October, Mykhailo Podolyak, in an interview with the German TV channel Welt, stated that the Russian Federation is trying to force Ukraine's partners to put pressure on President Volodymyr Zelensky to accept its ultimatum at the negotiating table and freeze the war, with further preparation of forces for a new invasion.
