There is no one to talk to – Zelenskyy on the possibility of talks with Putin in Turkey.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has rejected the possibility of holding talks with Vladimir Putin in Turkey.

When Zelenskiy was  asked whether he would have sat down at the negotiating table if Putin had been waiting for him in Ankara, the president replied as follows: "We talked about this [negotiations – ed.] before the war, and I told him (Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – ed.): ‘Put Putin at the negotiating table, we cannot risk a full-scale war.’ He failed to do so then. And not only he... Now he thinks he can.
Now we can't... He [Putin ] is not the same person; there is no one to talk to."

Zelenskyy added that he was grateful to Erdoğan, in particular, for the Black Sea Grain Initiative and shelter for the defenders of Azovstal steelworks. He also emphasized that Erdogan had been informed of his position regarding the negotiations.

Occupiers impose a three-day curfew in Chaplynka, Kherson Oblast – General Staff.

The Russians have imposed a round-the-clock curfew from 23 to 25 February, likely due to transferring military equipment from Crimea. Meanwhile, Russian military forces are being quartered in Nova Kakhovka.

In Chaplynka, Kherson Oblast, the occupiers imposed a round-the-clock curfew from 23 to 25 February this year. The reason may be the transfer of military equipment from the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to strengthen the defense line.

Russia will spread lies about Transnistria and may attack another European country – Zelenskiy.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is convinced that Russia will continue spreading lies regarding Transnistria [an unrecognized breakaway state internationally recognized as a part of Moldova – ed.] and does not rule out that Putin may attack another European country.

"Unfortunately, this [Russia's attack on another country – ed.] is possible. And it may happen. I can explain why. President Putin has to be presented with gains and victories. There will be no advances on the battlefield in Ukraine and no massive comeback; at the very least, we will fight, and if there is a supply [of weapons], we will be stronger.

Therefore, he [Putin] will have to be presented with gains. And everyone understands that it may be where there is a weakness (and preferably in those states where Moscow had influenced in Soviet times), and also where there are specific problems, inevitable conflicts, and certain separate institutions. This is what is happening. And this is Moldova. You know the example of Moldova," - said Zelenskiy.
