Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on former President Donald Trump to release his plan that will end the war between Ukraine and Russia.

In a recent Bloomberg Television interview, Zelensky stated, “If Trump knows how to finish this war, he should tell us today. If there are risks to Ukrainian independence, if we lose statehood — we want to be ready for this, we want to know.”


Zelensky also dismissed the idea that the war is at a stalemate, describing it instead as a “problematic situation.” He said, “A deadlock means there’s no way out. But a problem can be solved if one has the will and has the tools. We do have the will, and the tools — they haven’t arrived yet.”

This comes as some reports have indicated that Trump might be willing to negotiate with Russia to prevent Ukraine and Georgia from joining NATO. According to one report, Trump “would be open to something foreclosing NATO expansion and not going back to the 1991 borders for Ukraine.” Despite this, Andriy Yermak, head of the Presidential Office, made it clear that Ukraine would not compromise its values or territorial integrity to end the war.

Trump has frequently claimed he could end the war within 24 hours if he were president. In response, Zelensky has repeatedly invited Trump to visit Ukraine to understand the situation better. In addition to Zelensky, the Russian ambassador to the United Nations has also downplayed Trump’s claims that he could end the war, arguing it is very “complex.”
