"I informed the Finnish president about the security situation in Donbas. We exchanged views on further steps to end the war. It is important that our partners take a firm stance on keeping in place the sanctions regime against the Russian Federation until the full restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Zelensky said.
