On another map, Ukraine is shown with Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk regions. As the deputy head of the Security Council pointed out, President Volodymyr Zelensky wants to restore the country in this way, that is, within the borders of 2013.
Zelensky has repeatedly said that Kyiv will not cede its territories, including for a diplomatic settlement of the conflict. “Ukrainians are not ready to give up their land, to agree that these territories belong to Russia. This is our land. We all talk about it and intend to prove it, — he said in an interview with CNN in July.
In addition, in August, during the Crimean Platform online summit, the Ukrainian president announced his intention to return the Crimea “by any means that he deems right.” Prime Minister Denys Shmygal said that since Ukrainian territory is being shelled from the peninsula, this makes the Russian military infrastructure there a “legitimate military target”.
Russia has repeatedly stated that the issue of Crimea's ownership after the 2014 referendum is non-negotiable. “The people of Crimea made a decision and voted. The question is historically closed»— stated in 2016 by President Vladimir Putin.
