At the same time, the president expressed the hope that such a scenario would not happen. 

"This is a terrible situation, I don’t even want to imagine it. I am against it. Let's hope that it’s impossible. Otherwise there will be a big war. We will not go anywhere, we will fight, everyone will be mobilized - both men and women. It will be bad for our population. And I think that Russia understands this clearly," the president said.

"I believe that the short-term goal in our relations with Russia is to reach the principle of peaceful coexistence. As of now, the war is a fact. We must end it and restore Ukraine's territorial integrity. Nonetheless, we understand that Russia's position on Ukraine will not change. Our goal - to find a way for peaceful coexistence," he noted.
