KYIV, Ukraine—Any cease-fire that allows Russia to keep Ukrainian territories seized since

the invasion in February would only encourage an even wider conflict, giving Moscow a badly-needed opportunity to replenish and rearm for the next round, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned.

"Freezing the conflict with the Russian Federation means a pause that gives the Russian Federation a break for rest," Mr. Zelensky said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in the heavily fortified presidential compound in Kyiv on Friday. "They will not use this pause to change their geopolitics or to renounce their claims on the former Soviet republics."
