As we reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky believes that Ukraine could be talking with other states on equal grounds if it had its own nuclear arsenal.

"I understand that nuclear weaponry is a bad thing. But if Ukraine had nuclear weapons now if we did not do such a huge mistake - and in current conditions, I guess it was a mistake, indeed - there would be no invasion, and we would have our territories (Donbas and Crimea, - 112 International). We could be talking on equal grounds with the Russian Federation and the entire world," he noted.
