When asked by an RBC-Ukraine journalist during an interview whether Russian President Vladimir Putin is an enemy for him, Zelensky said: "Of course, he is."

He also said that, if elected president, he is not going to sign the law on amnesty for the militants of the so-called "Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics."

In addition, Zelensky does not believe Donbas should have a special status.

"I think, it shouldn't. I think this is a huge story, and it will take us long to get out of this criminal situation. Perhaps, it will be precisely information war that will help us here. I really hope to return these people information-wise to the state of mind of realizing that Ukraine needs them, they need Ukraine, and they are, too, Ukrainians. But a lot of humanitarian steps will have to be done, plenty of things," he said.
