Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has expressed his readiness to review the "peace formula" of former U.S. President Donald Trump. However, if it involves territorial concessions, it will not lead to peace, said Zelenskyy in an interview with Fox News.

According to the head of state, he is willing to engage in dialogue with the 45th U.S. President, Donald Trump, who has repeatedly claimed that he "could get a peace deal very quickly" for Ukraine.

"I am ready. If he (Trump) has a very concrete peace plan, he can share it with me. Yes, we can stop this war if we give to Russia Donbas and Crimea. In my mind, our country will not be ready for such a peace plan. It is not a peace plan," Zelenskyy noted.

What Trump said about Ukraine?

Earlier, Donald Trump, who plans to participate in the 2024 U.S. presidential elections, promised his voters to "end Russia's war against Ukraine in 24 hours" after being elected for a second presidential term.

At the same time, he also stated that he would allow Russia to take some Ukrainian territories to "avoid war."

It's worth noting that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had previously invited Trump to visit Ukraine. The president responded to Trump's promise to "end the war in Ukraine in 24 hours" in case of re-election.

In turn, Zelenskyy said that he would need "24 minutes" to explain to the former U.S. president that he would not end the war and that negotiations with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin were impossible. In response, Trump declined the invitation, allegedly due to not wanting to "create a conflict of interest."
