Zelensky insists on maintaining sanctions against Russia.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is sure that the war in Ukraine can be ended only by diplomatic means, and sanctions against Russia should be maintained until peace is restored.

He said this during a speech at the 16th Yalta European Strategy (YES) Annual Meeting in Kyiv on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Those who bravely defend Ukraine should return as winners. We must put an end to the war and return our territories. But I have repeatedly said that diplomacy is the only way to achieve this, and its powerful and effective weapon is sanctions," the president stressed.

According to Zelensky, he constantly repeats to world leaders about the need to maintain sanctions and reminds those who think of lifting sanctions that they are losing money and Ukraine is losing its people.

“In the civilized world, paying taxes is the norm, in particular, to maintain order. Sanctions are, in fact, the same taxes required for the world order. This is a tax for peace. That’s why sanctions must be maintained until peace is restored,” the head of state said.
