Adviser to the head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine Mikhail Podolyak declared this Tuesday that the obtaining defense systems is more pressing for your country than entertaining the idea of peace talks.
“We need air/missile defense systems and ‘closed skies’, no “appeasement/negotiations” talks with a Russian serial killer,” the adviser to the Ukrainian president, Vladimir Zelensky, said on Twitter.

Earlier, Podolyak commented on the drone attacks on Moscow in late July and warned that the conflict “will soon spill over” into Russian territory, which will bring “more unidentified dronesmore collapse, more civil conflict, more war”.
