Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country could not accept a deal with Moscow that would allow Russian troops to remain in Ukrainian territory, APA reports citing NBC News.

Speaking Wednesday to participants in the Wall Street Journal CEO Council Summit, Zelensky said Ukrainian forces had halted the Russian offensive in what he described as the first stage of the conflict.

In the second stage, he said, Ukraine would expel Russian troops from its territory and, in the third, would move to fully restore its territorial integrity.

Zelensky said he would not accept a cease-fire deal that would allow Russian forces to remain in their current positions ‒ insisting that “we will not accept a frozen conflict” ‒ but gave no further details.
