Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, after a meeting with Pope Francis, which took place in the Vatican on May 13, said that Kyiv does not need mediators to resolve the conflict. This is how he commented on the corresponding Vatican proposal on the broadcast of the RAI state television broadcast.
The Ukrainian leader stressed that the crisis in the country should be resolved according to the “peace plan” he proposed.
“With all due respect to His Holiness, we don’t need mediators, we need a just world,” he said.
The TV presenter also asked Zelenskyy about the possibility of future negotiations with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Ukraine’s president said that was out of the question, as he had nothing to discuss with the Russian leader.
On Saturday, Zelenskyy made a one-day visit to the Vatican. The personal meeting of the pontiff and the head of state did not last more than an hour.
