Come sit with me and discuss. What is it that you are frightened of? ‘I don’t bite,’ says Ukraine’s president Zelensky, addressing Putin (Video)

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to sit down with him and discuss ways to end the conflict.

On March 3, Zelenskyy called on the West to expand military aid to Ukraine, claiming that if the West did not, Russia would attack the rest of Europe.

“Give me planes if you don’t have the power to seal the skies!” At a press conference, Zelensky stated. “God forbid, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia will be the next,” he added, adding, “Believe me.”

After that, Zelensky underlined the importance of having direct conversations with Vladimir Putin, claiming that it was “the only way to end this war.” “What are you afraid of?” I inquire.

“We are not attacking Russia and we do not plan to attack it. What do you want from us?

“Please leave our land. If you don’t want to leave now, sit down at the table of negotiations. I am free. Sit down, but not 30 meters away, like with Macron or Scholz. I’m your neighbor … I don’t bite … Sit down with me and talk. What are you afraid of?”

“Sit down with me. Just not 30 metres away like with (French President Emmanuel Macron),” the Ukrainian leader said, referring to Putin receiving world leaders at an enormously long table.

Zelensky — who just weeks ago sought to calm Ukrainians over US allegations that Russia was planning to invade his country — said: “Nobody thought that in the modern world a man can behave like a beast.”

Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine last week, and the war which has lasted 7 days has impacted negatively on Russia’s economy as the West dropped heavy sanctions on the country.
