“President Putin will congratulate President Zelensky on first accomplishments in settlement of the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine, and with first success in the normalization of relations between Ukraine and Russia,” Peskov said.
Answering the question when this will happen, he answered: “I don’t have to reveal that. First accomplishments will be visible, if there will be any, we will see them with a naked eye”.
Earlier, Kremlin refused to congratulate Zelensky on the victory after the official announcement of the results.
The inauguration of Volodymyr Zelensky to the post of president of Ukraine took place today, on May 20 at 10:00 Kyiv time.
Zelensky dismissed Ukrainian Parliament at his inauguration and announced early elections after he took an oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people.
