Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in an interview with Central Asian media, considers the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, "the most inadequate enemy in the last 100 years." At the same time, he is "not as strong and certainly not eternal."

"We have the most inadequate enemy imaginable for the last 100 years. I know that friendship between us - the countries of Central Asia - will strengthen Ukraine, and any of the countries will strengthen it. But what will Putin say? Imagine. I would very much like us to have more meetings, a dialogue at the level of the countries' leaders. People always come to an agreement, and I am sure of that," he said.

The Ukrainian president reminded that Putin is "not as strong and certainly not eternal."

"All your countries, peoples will survive the Kremlin, and all will survive Putin, 100%. Therefore, I also think that we need to think about what will happen in 10-20 years between the people of our countries. If someone does not respect someone, there will be no contracts, no economics - there will be nothing, there will be visas, borders, queues, there will be no planes, there will be no large number of flights. And if people respect each other, then everything will be very quick. I am a very open person, I have nothing to hide, I know what I need to do to strengthen Ukraine's friendship with other countries, and I am always ready to take the first step," Zelenskyy reiterated, underscoring his unwavering commitment.

Zelenskyy's statement about Putin

The Ukrainian president is not the first to speak out about the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin. Based on recent events, Zelenskyy believes that Putin is afraid of what the peace summit scheduled for June in Switzerland might offer.

In addition, the head of the Ukrainian state believes that Putin does not consider the consequences of his decisions before making them. At the same time, in his opinion, Putin could have ended the war against Ukraine himself if he were not in an information bubble.
