Ukraine needs to face reality and talk to Putin -Zelenskiy

STORY: "There are things to discuss with the Russian leader. I'm not telling you that to me our people are eager to talk to him, but we have to face the realities of what we are living through," Zelenskiy said in an address to an Indonesian think tank.

"We want our lives back," he said, "we want to reclaim the life of a sovereign country within its own territory," adding that Russia did not appear to be ready yet for serious peace talks.
