Volodymyr Zelesky, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky presented his Friday conditions for entering peace talks. These included a restoration preinvasion border, return of over 5 million refugees and membership to the European Union. Kyiv also needs accountability from Russian military leadership before it will consider giving up its arms.

Zelensky’s slate of requirements, which he listed during an online forum organized by Chatham House, are in direct conflict with the military objectives Russian leaders have articulated as they bear down on the Donbas region and southern Ukraine — inflicting additional casualties Friday in apparent violation of a cease-fire.
