Many countries of the world will advocate more strongly for peace talks with Russia this fall, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said during an Instagram interview with a journalist Vadym Karpiak on Aug. 11.
"I warn everyone: a hard political season awaits for us," Kuleba said.
"We'll definitely win on all fronts, but the upcoming autumn will be tough."
Asked about what exactly "a tough autumn" means in diplomacy, Kuleba said that a lot of international summits are scheduled this fall, where Ukraine will need "the support of the whole world and not only of the traditional friends from Europe and Northern America."
"You see all these voices about some ‘problems’ and the need for peace talks which are coming from different parts of the world. They are not the official voices, however they have increased in strength internationally. We’re doing our best within international legislation and criminal proceedings in order for these voices to fade away.”

Please help us continue fighting Russian propaganda.
Truth can be hard to tell from fiction these days. Every viewpoint has its audience of backers and supporters, no matter how absurd.
If conscious disinformation is reinforced by state propaganda apparatus and budget, its outcomes may become deadly.
There is no solution to this, other than independent, honest, and accurate reporting.
We remain committed to empowering the Ukrainian voice to push against the muck. If you’re willing to stand up for the truth – consider supporting us on Patreon starting from 5$ per month. Thank you very much.
Will you help tell Ukraine’s story to the world?
Twenty years ago, most people hadn’t even heard of Ukraine. Today, the country is on everyone’s lips and everyone’s headlines. War pushed us on the front page. But there are many other things we do that we are proud of – from music and culture to technology.
