On Friday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky rejected the idea of a truce with Russia during the upcoming Paris Olympics, which will be held from July 26 to August 11.

French President Emmanuel Macron proposed a truce in a recent call with Zelensky. “Let’s be honest … Emmanuel, I don’t believe it,” Zelensky said he told the French president, according to AFP.

“Who can guarantee that Russia will not use this time to bring its forces to our territory?” he said. “We are against any truce that plays into the hands of the enemy.”
