Kyiv. Given Ukraine’s deteriorating state during the war, the United States privately told President Volodymyr Zelensky that rejecting the offer of talks with Russia would be a step not only for him but also for the allies. US officials believe that due to growing apprehensions about the economic impact of this long war, the situation for Ukraine and its allies is worsening. This is why US officials are said to have privately warned the Ukrainian government that it should signal its openness to talks with Russia.
According to a report from the Washington Post, US officials have warned that the economic situation of Ukraine as well as its allies could worsen if Kyiv continues to keep its doors closed for the talks. While Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that Ukraine will only be ready to participate in talks with Russia if its troops evacuate all parts of Ukraine. Including Crimea and the eastern regions of Donbass. Which have actually been under Russian occupation since 2014. Along with this, Russians who have committed crimes in Ukraine will face a war crimes trial. Zelensky also clarified that he would not meet with the current Russian president. Last month, he signed an executive order. In which it was said that Ukraine would only negotiate with Vladimir Putin’s successor and a new Russian president.

It should be noted that the United States has so far provided $18.9 billion in aid to Ukraine and is ready to provide more assistance. America says it will help Ukraine as long as it takes. However, America’s allies in Europe, Africa and parts of Latin America are concerned about the possibility of this war being prolonged. They believe this war is having a detrimental effect on energy and food prices and supply chains around the world.
