UKRAINE wants to hold peace talks by the end of February, its foreign minister said.
The war-torn country will do whatever it can to beat Russia in 2021, Dmytro Kuleba said, adding that diplomacy has an important role.
He suggested secretary-general Antonio Guterres could mediate a possible peace summit at the United Nation.
But he insisted Russia should only be invited to join the talks if it first faces prosecution for war crimes in an international court.
It comes after Vladimir Putin suggested he is open to talks, despite launching fresh shelling against Ukraine.
If the peace summit does take place in February, it would me a year after Russia first invaded.
Mr Kuleba said “every war ends in a diplomatic way”, 追加する: “Every war ends as a result of the actions taken on the battlefield and at the negotiating table.”
彼はまた言った: “The United Nations could be the best venue for holding this summit because this is not about making a favour to a certain country.
“This is really about bringing everyone on board.”
Ukraine has been humiliating mad tyrant Putin in the war by wiping out much of Russia’s war machine.
The Russian death toll has surpassed 100,000, it has lost previously-captured territory and equipment has been destroyed by precise strikes.
