Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed concern over former US President Donald Trump’s assertions that he could quickly resolve the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia.

In a recent interview with the UK’s Channel 4 News, Zelensky openly invited Trump to visit Kyiv, challenging him to stop the war within 24 hours. This statement follows Trump’s repeated claims that, if re-elected, he could negotiate peace between Ukraine and Russia.

Zelensky’s invitation mirrors a similar one extended in November following President Joe Biden’s visit to the war-torn region. Emphasizing the situation’s complexity, Zelensky highlighted the importance of understanding the ground realities, which he believes can only be grasped by being in Ukraine. However, he expressed skepticism about Trump’s proposed “peace plan,” citing its lack of detail and clarity as worrying. Zelensky also voiced his apprehension about Trump’s approach, fearing unilateral decisions that might not align with Ukraine’s interests or the well-being of its people.

As winter sets in, Zelensky’s call for international aid and assistance becomes increasingly urgent.
