Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has dismissed the idea of engaging in peace negotiations with Moscow despite the worsening situation on the combat line, according to TASS. Zelensky emphasized that Russia is not prepared to cease combat, and Ukraine is not considering peace at any cost.
Reports on November 4 suggested that US and EU officials were discussing potential peace talks with Russia and what compromises Kyiv might make. Zelensky denied these claims, expressing irritation at media reports about pressure to negotiate with Russia and stating he had no idea where such claims originated.
As the Ukrainian conflict enters its 20th month, continuous Western aid is being provided to the Kyiv regime. Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov referred to a recent US military aid package as a “sedative pill” for the regime, suggesting a looming collapse. The Pentagon’s $100 million aid package includes anti-tank weapons, air defence interceptors, and additional artillery rocket systems, as reported by TASS.
