Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with the BBC that he does not cling to power and believes that if he cannot stop the war in Donbas, then another person should lead the country.
Zelenskiy said this is a condition under which he will leave office. Also, the Ukrainian president did not rule out the possibility of concluding a peace agreement with Moscow on Crimea.
He said that he believed in this and would not have gone to the presidency otherwise. Zelensky added that "it is very difficult" and Ukraine will need "the help of the whole world."
Earlier, Rada deputy Vadim Rabinovich criticized the decision of the Ukrainian leadership to cancel local elections in Donbass. In Ukraine, on October 25, the next local elections will be held, but they will not take place in the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions not controlled by Kiev, which will continue to be subject to civil-military administrations.
