“We were inferior in terms of equipment and because of that we were not able to advance,” he told the newspaper.
Zelenky also said Ukraine would suffer more losses if the visit did not get help from the West. “We will suffer more losses and people are my priority.”
Furthermore, when asked what Ukraine considered a victory, Zelensky said restoring the Ukrainian-controlled border would be a “serious temporary victory”.
But he said his main goal was to drive Russia out of the country.
“Complete cessation of occupation of our entire territory,” he said.
