Andrei Yermak, director of the Ukrainian President’s Office, said on Saturday that peace in his country would be possible “only” if the country restored its borders that were drawn in 1991.
Yermak wrote via Telegram, “Peace will come when we destroy the Russian army in Ukraine and reach the demarcation of the borders of 1991,” the date of Ukraine’s secession from the Soviet Union.
The Ukrainian official’s statements came in the wake of the field victories achieved by Kyiv in some areas.
On November 11, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the entry of his country’s forces into the city of Kherson, after the withdrawal of the Russian army from it to positions on the left bank of the Dnipro River.
