So, during the event, one of the journalists asked Kuleba and Borrell about their position in relation to statements about the West's fatigue with the conflict in Ukraine, comparing the situation to the "elephant in the room" - a problem that everyone notices, but no one talks about.

Answering the question, Kuleba noted that this idiom is unfair to elephants, as they are very wise animals that are ready to protect each other.

He said that Ukraine is a member of the herd, so "elephants will defend" it as much as Kiev contributes to their defense.

Kuleba also said that the West is not pushing Ukraine to start negotiations with Russia.

According to Vladimir Medinsky, an aide to the Russian president, the Ukrainian government admits that it does not make independent decisions, Kiev is controlled from the outside.
