Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the conflict with Russia should be finished, rather than frozen.
Speaking to African journalists, Zelensky said that a frozen conflict would be like a stalemate crisis.
"It's the same as war, but without a possibility to respond to the enemy, without hope for the future, without hope for investment,” he said, noting that Ukraine has been living under such conditions since 2014.
"A frozen conflict is like a volcano that is sleeping but will definitely wake up. We understand this beast, it will still regain its strength and move on," Zelensky said.
Zelensky also said that Kyiv can not afford "any stalemate situation.”
"We want peace. The ending may be different, some may like it, some may not, but it is necessary,” he concluded.
