Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Wednesday he would not accept any peace proposal that turns Russia's war on his country into a frozen conflict.
Zelenskiy's remarks, in a speech to parliament on Ukraine's Constitution Day, signaled that he remains opposed to any peace plan that freezes territorial gains made by Russia since it began its full-scale invasion in February 2022.
"Ukraine will not agree to any of the variants for a frozen conflict," he said.
Ukraine's peace plan
Zelenskiy has drawn up a 10-point peace "formula" that includes restoring Ukraine's territorial integrity, the withdrawal of Russian troops and the restoration of Ukraine's state borders.
Kyiv has launched a counteroffensive to try to retake occupied territory, but Russian forces still hold swathes of territory in eastern and southern Ukraine.
