Politician Mikheil Saakashvili who was nominated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky as Deputy Prime Minister for Reforms favors peace with the Russian Federation. He stated this in an interview with DW.
According to Saakashvili, Zelensky does not make concessions to Russia on issues that concern Donbas because he defends the country's sovereignty.
"I am an absolute supporter of peace with Russia. The fact that Zelensky proposed my candidacy indicates that he is in favor of an independent foreign policy. I see that Russian media were full of hysteria over the last two days, and President Zelensky also knows about it. And no one opposes peace with Russia, but there are different conditions under which this peace is achieved. I do not believe that Zelensky will make concessions to the Kremlin," the politician said.
He also added that Russian President Vladimir Putin no longer had a political future as dictatorship always ended.
As we reported earlier, ex-President of Georgia and former Chairman of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had instructed him to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund.
