"No one has the right to demand any action by Ukraine. We are an independent state. It seems to me that everyone here should work on rhetoric, especially since this is international rhetoric," he told journalists in the town of Yuzhne during a working trip to Odesa region on July 4.

The president also noted that he was not yet ready to comment on the meeting of political advisers to Normandy Four leaders, which was held in Berlin on July 3.

"I'll tell you frankly I'm not yet ready to comment on this. I was told that the meeting was good and substantive," he said.

Zelensky added that he would hold a meeting with Head of Ukrainian President's Office Andriy Yermak and Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, one of Ukraine's envoys to the TCG for the Donbas settlement in Minsk Oleksiy Reznikov, who took part in the meeting.
