"Indeed, am I ready for the resignation? I am ready from the very beginning, while still assuming this position. I was an ambassador to NATO when the president proposed to me to become Foreign Minister. It's an honor, but I obviously understand for more than 25 years of my careers how quickly ministers change over time. And there is always readiness," the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.

The diplomat does not exclude that they can already select candidates for his post - typically, this is done by the head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak. But the final decision is made by Volodymyr Zelensky, Prystaiko emphasized.

He says that he is not satisfied with his work or his colleagues in the government.

As we reported before, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadym Prystayko does not rule out that Belarus will have to fight against Russia.

"Several years ago, I spoke with some Belarusian journalists, and when I formally made a statement to them that if they wanted to remain independent, they would have to face the same war, the same hardships, and the same suffering as we had, they did not believe me. Maybe, now they have less doubt about it," Prystayko said.
