Should Zelensky Surrender To End the War in Ukraine as Soon as Possible?

Certain territories could be given to Russia, at least for now. At the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, I considered Volodymyr Zelensky’s decisions and behavior incredible acts of honor and courage — traits shared by all Ukrainian people who joined him in the fight to defend their land and legacy.
