Asked at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) summit if there could really be all out-war with Russia, which seized the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and backs pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine's east, Zelenskiy said:"I think there can be." "It's the worst thing that could happen, but unfortunately there is that possibility," he added, speaking in Ukrainian.India and Russia were both deeply concerned at the developments in Afghanistan, an Indian government official said, following a meeting between Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev and Indian National Security Adviser Ajit Doval in New Delhi.Kyiv says the conflict in eastern Ukraine has killed 14,000 people since 2014."This is an irreparable personal loss for me," Putin said in a telegram of condolence published by the Kremlin.Zelenskiy said relations with the United States had improved, but bemoaned the fact that Ukraine had not received a clear answer to its request to join the NATO military alliance - a move that would be certain to infuriate Moscow."There was convergence of views on the presence of international terrorist groups in Afghanistan and threat from terrorism to Central Asia and India," the official said."We have not received." The Emergencies Ministry said in a statement Zinichev had died while trying to save filmmaker Alexander Melnik who had travelled to Norilsk to make a documentary about the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route.

.Russia fears turmoil in Afghanistan could spill over into Central Asia, which it regards as its southern defensive flank and as a sphere of influence from which radical Islamist threats could emanate.It said Melnik had slipped on a wet rock and fallen..a direct position on Ukraine's accession to NATO," he said.India and Russia have long been close military partners but in recent years New Delhi has turned to the United States for weapons supplies and forged closed political ties."Ukraine has been ready for a long time."There were a fair number of witnesses - no one even had time to think about what had happened when Zinichev threw himself into the water for the fallen person and crashed into a protruding rock," she said." He said a refusal to admit Ukraine would weaken NATO while playing into Russia's hands.(Reporting by Sanjeev Miglani, additional reporting by Tom Balmforth in Moscow; Editing by Andrew Heavens and Alex Richardson) TRENDING News18.A biography carried by state-run media said Zinichev was born in St Petersburg and served in the state security services from 1987 to 2015 and was also involved in security for Putin.

Tensions between Kyiv and Moscow increased earlier this year when fighting in eastern Ukraine intensified and Russia massed more troops near the border.Moscow accused Ukraine of losing interest in peace talks, while Zelenskiy pushed in vain for a meeting with Putin in the conflict zone.Multiple photographs of Putin at public events over several years show Zinichev standing at the president's shoulder."Honestly, I don't have time to think about him," Zelenskiy said on Friday."I'm more interested in whether we can really meet substantively, not declaratively as he does with some states," he added."It seems to me that today.

..they do not see the sense in resolving issues.End the war and resolve conflict issues quickly - they don't want this." Source: Reuters/vc.
