In his speech, the Ukrainian president stated that Russia would not have stopped at the Ukrainian borders after February 24 if it had not been stopped. He calculated that the target of the Russian strike would be the Baltic states, Poland, Moldova, Georgia and Kazakhstan, and Russia would also try to conquer various nations of Europe and Asia.

He added that Russia is trying to steal what does not belong to it by trying to annex Ukrainian territory. The president described the attempts at annexation as a “farce”. He stressed that Russia wants to rewrite history and paint borders through “killings, abuse, blackmail and lies.” – Ukraine will not allow this to happen – he assured.

“Only the path of strengthening Ukraine and expelling the occupiers from all over Ukrainian territory will restore peace,” he pointed out. – We will go this way – he pointed out.

Zelenskiy concluded his statement with the words: – We are ending the dismantling of the Russian influence on Ukraine, Europe and the world. Glory to Ukraine!
