This is not a suitable time for presidential elections, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in the video he shared on Tuesday.
"We must realize that now is the time for intervention. The fate of our state depends on it, so now is not the time for elections," Zelenskyy said.
The Kyiv regime, which lost approximately 100,000 soldiers after the major failure of the Ukrainian counter-offensive in the summer, had declared "martial law" in the country at the beginning of the clashes.
It is known that officials from the United States and the European Union, the main allies of the Kyiv regime, have proposed negotiations to end the 20-month-old conflict.
Zelenskyy, however, vehemently rejects claims that Ukraine's counter-offensive has reached an impasse or that Western countries are forcing Kyiv to enter negotiations.
