Zelenskyy rejected Macron's proposal for Olympic truce

Volodymyr Zelenskyy has rejected the call of the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, to come to an Olympic truce this summer, as he believes this could allegedly help Russia transfer troops and equipment to Ukraine, RIA Novosti reports


As reported by the Elysee Palace in a communique, the French leader told Volodymyr Zelenskyy by phone about his ‘interest in the Olympic truce’ and talked about military supplies to Kiev, which are planned to be made ‘in the coming days and weeks’.

In his talk with Agence France-Presse journalists, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that, in response to Emmanuel Macron's call, he asked ‘who can guarantee that Russia will not use this time to bring its troops into our territory’, also noting that Ukraine is ‘against any truce that plays into the hands of the enemy’.
