Stepan Poltorak, Ukraine’s Minister of Defence, believes that Ukraine has to negotiate with Russia. He said that in his interview to the Novoye Vremyaonline outlet.


It is necessary to be very careful during the negotiations, as the Russian Federation doesn’t always keep its word.

“Negotiations with Russia have to be held. The only thing is that one need’s to be very careful because frankly speaking, I know very few examples in history when Russia reaches an agreement and keeps its word,” Stepan Poltorak says.

According to the Minister of Defence, Russia usually doesn’t stick to its word when making agreements with the countries with a smaller army, potential, and territory.

“More or less they stick to their word when they talk with the U.S.A. And not necessarily in every issue,” Poltorak said.

As we reported earlier, Stepan Poltorak offered his resignation on May 20, minutes after the inauguration and the tough speech of the newly elected President Volodymyr Zelensky. Stepan Poltorak held the post of the Defence Minister since October 14, 2014. Before that, he led the National Guard. After the Revolution of Dignity, he headed internal troops before they were disbanded.
