"We had a good laugh in the office and refused to negotiate for the first time. When they asked for the second time, and the very fact that they first ask us for negotiations says a lot, from my point of view, and they promised to remove the preconditions, so we agreed", - the adviser to the head of the presidential office told.

I think this is the first attempt at writing. But let's hope that prudence will prevail, because what is happening is not so pitiful for Ukraine as for the Russian army. You have no idea what is going on here. We have more than 100 thousand reservists in line over the day".
