Zelenskyy assesses the possibility of an “Olympic truce”

May 18, 2024

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy commented on the possibility of an “Olympic truce” during the Olympics in Paris this summer.


According to the head of state, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin does not adhere to any “truce.”

“Macron (French President Emmanuel Macron - ed.) raised the issue of a ceasefire. I said: We had a ceasefire with you, and it worked for several months with Putin, but there was no full-scale war. And you remember agreeing with him that he would not attack us. And he went ahead anyway. Let's be honest, we can't believe it,” Zelenskyy recalled the conversation with Macron.

At the same time, the Ukrainian president added that even in the event of a truce, Russia would use this time to bring reserves to the territory of Ukraine.

“There is a risk that if we do not repel their attacks and do not stop them with fire, there is a risk that they will bring heavy equipment to our territory,” the president emphasized.
