White House says seeking settlement through negotiations is President Zelensky's prerogative. The US will not push Ukraine to negotiate a settlement with Russia, even if the Biden administration deems it right, National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby said. “Now is the time to continue to support Ukraine, and that’s exactly what we’re doing,” Kirby said. Speaking on Fox News, Kirby stressed that it will always be the prerogative of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to seek a settlement through talks with President Vladimir Putin and Russia. “It will be up to President Zelensky to determine how the issue of victory will be resolved, when and on what terms,” Kirby explained. – And we will make sure that he can make progress on the battlefield, that he can make progress at the negotiating table. But even President Zelensky will tell you this is no time for such discussions.” Голос Америки
