Ukrainian Defense Minister: revealed only possible "territorial compromise" with russia

Territorial compromise with russia is going back to Ukraine's 1991 borders. We will successively liberate all our territories, including Crimea.

RBC-Ukraine reports it with reference to the statement of the head of the Ministry of Defense, Oleksii Reznikov, on the air of DR Denmark.

As the minister emphasized, Ukraine needs to stabilize the front so that the General Staff can choose the most favorable methods and directions for a counteroffensive.

"We need a counteroffensive to liberate the territories; that is why we announced it as a fact. Our people and partners are waiting for active actions, and our partners should know that we need more weapons for active actions. Our main goal is to liberate all temporarily occupied territories within the borders of 1991. Including Kherson, Mariupol, Berdyansk, Luhansk, Donetsk, and, of course, Crimea," Reznikov noted.

The head of the Ministry of Defense emphasized that "compromises" with russia can be allowed only when our country receives stable support from allies and an understanding of the security architecture for years to come.

"A compromise is possible only when the russians withdraw their troops from Ukraine's territory, and the issue of the neighborhood between the countries is discussed after the liberation of the territories. They will have to pay reparations for all the destroyed infrastructure and all the killed Ukrainians — for murders, rapes, tortures, and all crimes. Territorial compromise is going back to Ukraine's borders of 1991," he emphasized.
