Ukraine's President Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy has said that while talking directly with Russia’s Vladimir Putin may not be popular, the country has to “face the realities” that direct engagement is needed to end the war.

“There are things to discuss with the Russian leader. I’m not telling you that to me our people are eager to talk to him, but we have to face the realities of what we are living through,” Zelensyy said in an address to an Indonesian think-tank.

“What do we want from this meeting … We want our lives back … We want to reclaim the life of a sovereign country within its own territory,” he said.

He added that Russia did not appear ready for serious peace talks. _Agencies
