The journalist asked Zelenskyy whether there will be elections in Ukraine next year.
"This is a global issue. If we win, there will be. So there will be no wartime, no war," he answered.
Zelenskyy noted that, according to the law, elections must be held in peacetime, when there is no war.
"I really want peace in the next year and life to be as it was before the war," he concluded.
