The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenski today rejected the possibility of any peace negotiations with Moscow without the prior withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine.

"People who kill, rape and shoot our cities with cruise missiles every day cannot want peace. First they have to leave our territory, then we will see," he said.

At the press conference held in Lviv in the western part of Ukraine, Zelensky warned that "Russia should not be trusted".
