Some Western countries are waiting for Ukraine to surrender so that all problems will be solved by themselves, said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba in an interview with Dmitry Gordon (included in the list of individuals and organizations in respect of which there is information about their involvement in terrorism or extremist activities).
“The ministers of foreign affairs often ask me in interviews and conversations: how long can you hold out? Instead of asking what else needs to be done to defeat [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, — said the minister.
He added that there is a feeling that everyone is waiting “when we fall and the problem disappears by itself.”
Russia has been conducting a special operation in Ukraine since February 24. President Vladimir Putin called its goals “demilitarization and” denazification “; neighboring country, as well as protecting the inhabitants of Donbass from the policy of “genocide”, which, according to the head of state, was carried out by the Ukrainian authorities. On June 29, Putin proposed not to talk about the timing of its completion.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about the growing fatigue in the world from what is happening in Ukraine. “Of course, everyone wants to push us to some result, which is definitely undesirable for us, because we are not asked. And desirable for those or other parties. They probably have their own interests, both financial and political. Fatigue is growing, people want some result for themselves. And we need a result for us,»,— he declared. This is how the president reacted to reports that the US, Britain and the EU are discussing ways to resolve the situation in Ukraine without the participation of representatives of Kyiv (CNN wrote about this, in particular).
In addition, Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, argued that some Western politicians are offering Kyiv to give up part of the territories to stop hostilities. He stressed that Ukraine would not make such “compromises”. Zelensky had previously warned that Kyiv would withdraw from the negotiation process with Moscow if referendums were held in the territories occupied by Russian forces.

In turn, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said in early April that the US wanted to see Russia defeated on the battlefield. The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, also stated that the conflict should end on the battlefield, and called for increased pressure on Moscow.
Putin responded by saying that Russia in Ukraine “hadn't really started anything yet”, however, she never refused to negotiate with Kyiv. “Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Well, what can I say, let them try»,— the president warned.
